A 48-eight-year-old male presented with redness and blurred vision in his right eye for the past 10 days, sudden in onset, with circumciliary congestion and corneal edema. On examination localized disciform corneal edema, with multiple keratic precipitates, was seen and diagnosed as corneal endotheliitis. Specular microscopy showed endothelial morphological changes with pseudoguttae. Anterior chamber paracentesis subjected to polymerase chain reaction detected varicella zoster virus. He was treated with topical 3% acyclovir gel, homatropine eye drops, 1% prednisolone acetate, and 0.5% timolol maleate. Prednisolone acetate was tapered over 14 weeks. His visual acuity at presentation was 6/36, which improved to 6/9 after 4 weeks of treatment and the final visual acuity was 6/6.
