Subconjunctival hemorrhage was observed at a significantly higher incidence in Group A, while conjunctival congestion, corneal swelling, whole corneal staining (incision site excluded), keratic precipitates, and anterior chamber flare showed no statistically significant difference between the two groups (Table 3).
Despite the hyperchromic appearance and stroma atrophy of the iris, there were no findings suggestive of inflammation (keratic precipitates in the corneal endothelium, posterior synechia, or anterior chamber inflammatory cells).
Examine for presence of endothelial pigmentary deposits (pigment dispersion syndrome (PDS)), keratic precipitates (hypertensive uveitis), or red blood cells (traumatic or neovascular)
Anterior uveitis is another common finding, presenting with mutton-fat keratic precipitates, anterior chamber cells and flare, and posterior synechiae [3-5].

Anterior segment inflammation consisted of granulomatous keratic precipitates (KP), mild cellular reaction, with an elevated IOP of 35 mm Hg.
Slit-lamp examination revealed diffuse fine pigmentosus keratic precipitates on the posterior corneal surface and diffuse pigment dispersion on the iris in the right eye.

The diagnostic criteria of HSK included (1) subjective symptoms of the affected eye, including redness and swelling, paresthesia, photophobia, tearing, and decreased visual acuity; (2) typical eye signs like dendritic or map-like infiltration or ulcers, terminal expansion, positive fluorescein sodium staining, discoid edema of the stroma, and substantial keratic precipitates (KPs); (3) negative results of corneal scraping smear examination for bacteria and fungi and laser confocal microscopy for fungal hyphae and amoeba cysts; and (4) gradual improvement of the patient after systemic and local antiviral medications [5-7].
