Abstract

Purpose: To describe an unusual complication of an intravitreal injection. Observation: Here, we report a case of hypotony following an intravitreal injection due to a posterior cyclodialysis cleft and describe its management and resolution. Conclusions: Posterior cyclodialysis clefts are a rare cause of hypotony following intravitreal injection. Posterior clefts may not be visualized by conventional gonioscopy. Ultrasound biomicroscopy may be useful in aiding diagnosis. Importance: This report highlights a rare cause of hypotony following intravitreal injection and illustrates the importance of adjunctive imaging for accurate diagnosis.
