Anterior chamber cholesterolosis is an unusual finding, commonly caused by ocular trauma. Pathogenesis is still unknown; therefore, cases should be reported to determine correlations between past medical history and suggest probable etiologies. A 27-year-old male presented with normal vision in the right eye and no light perception in the left after suffering blunt ocular trauma. Ocular examination showed freely movable, highly refractile crystals forming a pseudohypopyon in the anterior chamber. B-scan ultrasonography revealed close funnel retinal detachment, ultrasound biomicroscopy showed cholesterol crystals in the anterior chamber and irideocorneal angle. Anterior chamber washout was performed, and aspirate indicated rhomboidal cholesterol crystals.
