Development of late "in-the-bag" hyphema and UGH plus syndrome in a patient nine years post-op.

Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema Syndrome (UGH Syndrome) is a rare complication of cataract surgery, typically presenting as blurry vision in the weeks to months post-op. Symptoms may include elevated Intra-Ocular Pressure (IOP), uveitis, and recurrent hyphema. We present a case of an unusual manifestation of UGH Syndrome with bleeding into the posterior capsule after an uneventful cataract surgery nine years prior.
