A 45-year-old male visited for follow up of chronic herpes simplex uveitis diagnosed 5 years ago using polymerase chain reaction. He had three relapses in right and one in the left eye. On examination, visual acuity was 6/6 both eyes, no corneal involvement, anterior chambers were quiet and there was remarkable atrophy of the iris sphincter in the right eye and a small atrophic patch in the left eye [Figure 1].
Figure 1: Right eye shows an unusual pattern of near-total sphincter atrophy (a) with loss of elasticity of the sphincter pupillae as well as extensive posterior synechiae leading to incomplete dilatation of the pupil (b). In the left eye, a small atrophic patch in sphincter pupillae was seen at 6 o'clock (c) which dilated well with mydriatics (d)
