Resumo Purpose: To report a case of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis ( DUSN) that developed an acute iridocyclitis with hypopyon. Methods: Case report. We describe a 21-year-old male with clinical diagnosis of DUSN who developed a sudden and severe acute iridocyclitis with hypopyon after one year of follow-up that resolved after treatment with systemic corticosteroids. Results: Anterior chamber paracentesis was performed and cultures were negative. Cytologic studies disclosed the presence of eosinophils. Conclusions: This unusual ocular finding may be related to the death of the nematode in the course of the disease.
