Abstract

We describe a 3-month-old patient with a primary epithelial cyst of the iris stroma. Although these cysts account for 16% of all childhood iris cysts, these cysts are uncommon with only a small number of reported cases.1-6 Because our patient's cyst had amblyogenic potential, we proceeded with surgical treatment. The cyst was aspirated, but it recurred within 7 weeks. Sector iridectomy with excision of the cyst was performed, again with recurrence and subsequent glaucoma and cataract. These cysts present difficult management issues concerning the choice of initial surgical treatment and subsequent complications.
