Nine-year old warmblood gelding presented with chronic-acute, persistent panuveitis of the right eye (OD). Negative c-value for Leptospira. a. Initial presentation: Blepharospasm, epiphora, diffuse corneal edema, 360° corneal neovascularization, + 4/4 flare, fibrin in anterior chamber and miosis were present. The posterior aspect of the eye could not be visualized. Inflammation was controlled with medical therapy. b. One-hundred-fifteen days post-initial presentation: Two additional bouts of inflammation since initial presentation. Both intravitreal gentamicin injection (IVGI) and aqueocentesis were performed. Immature cataract and posterior synechia were present at the time of IVGI OD. c. Seven days post-IVGI OD: Immature cataract. d. Sixty days post-IVGI OD: Medical treatment was discontinued 39 days prior to this examination. No signs of active inflammation could be identified. e. One-hundred-thirteen days post IVGI OD: Mature cataract (cataract maturation). No signs of active inflammation. f. Three-hundred-twenty-seven days post-IVGI OD: Uveitis remains controlled without medical treatment. g. Six-hundred-two days post-IVGI OD: No recurrent bouts of inflammation since IVGI
