*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.

Congenital ectropion uveae

congenital ectropion uveae

The patient was examined because of a red, swollen, tender upper lid. Diagnosis: acute meibomianitis (acute internal sty). A coincidental finding was a pigment layer involving the pars pupillaris of the iris. It involves 360s but is wider inferiorly. It represents a congenital ectropion uveae. See Fuchs's Textbook of Ophthalmology, p.454.
