INTRODUCTION: We present a case in which a gastrointestinal infection with Campylobacter jejuni presented as acute angle closure glaucoma secondary to the uveal effusion syndrome.
METHOD: A 58-year-old white man presented with acute angle closure and raised pressure in both the eyes along with diarrhea. Ultrasound B-scans showed choroidal effusion. Stool culture grew C. jejuni.
RESULTS: A 3-week treatment with topical steroids and antiglaucoma medication resolved the condition. He was also treated with oral antibiotics.
CONCLUSION: C. jejuni has not been isolated earlier in a case of uveal effusion presenting as secondary angle closure glaucoma. In this respect our case is unique.
