The terminology of bacillary layer detachment (BLD) has been used vicariously to describe the splitting of the photoreceptor layers at the level of the myoids and has been discerned in multiple uveitic pathologies. To add to the existing literature, we report BLD in the acute stage of sympathetic ophthalmia presenting as an enclosed outer retinal cyst extending between the external limiting membrane and retinal pigment epithelium with disruption of the outer retinal layers and apparent splitting of the photoreceptor myoid zone at its margins. The cystic-appearing BLD collapsed following treatment with systemic steroids with improvement in vision.
