Hypopyon
  • Subscribe

The term hypopyon is used to describe a milky white fluid level in the inferior part of the anterior chamber. This occurs due to the sedimentation of white blood cells which can be secondary to either an inflammatory or infective process. The presence of a hypopyon always represents a serious sight threatening condition and requires immediate referral for specialist treatment.
