A 22-year-old man presented after a penetrating knife injury to the left eye, causing prolapse of the iris, ciliary body, and retinal tissue. The wound was repaired, and antibiotic and steroid therapy was started. At that time, the right eye appeared normal. The patient stopped treatment after discharge and was readmitted 2 weeks later with bilateral panuveitis. His injured eye was enucleated. Pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of sympathetic ophthalmia.
