Abstract

Persistent anterior uveitis causing cystoid macular oedema may necessitate either intraocular or systemic immunosuppression. This case report highlights how a newly licenced treatment, fluocinolone acetonide (Iluvien<sup>®</sup>, Alimera Sciences Ltd., England, UK) achieves quiescence in refractory and steroid-dependent disease and in the presence of an acute relapse.
