A 5-years-old child presented with a history of trauma to the left eye with wooden-stick causing corneal laceration with iris tissue prolapse. Corneal laceration repair with iris tissue repositioning was done. Fibrin membrane over anterior lens surface, anterior chamber (AC) cells4+, and moderate flare were noted on day 1. Multiple, round, whitish aggregates with clear center, looking like rings of smoke were seen in AC [Figure 1]a. Diagnostic dilemma of fungal endophthalmitis versus inflammatory exudates arose because of peculiar aggregates. Negative KOH mount and fungal cultures of vitreous and AC-tap, anechoic B-scan ruled out fungal endophthalmitis. [Figure 1]b showing partial resolution of aggregates with topical steroids. Complete resolution occurred with topical steroids and antibiotics.
