  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Intracapsular cataract extraction was per-formed in 16 eyes of ten cases with the Behçet syndrome. Immunosuppressive agents (6 MP Endoxan or Imuran) had been systemically administered to lessen the frequency of hypo-pyon iritic attacks so that the operation can be performed at least one month after the last attack.

Even though the ERG was non-recordable prior to surgery, an improvement in visual a-cuity was achieved in 11 eyes. The visual a-cuity was unaffected in 3 eyes and deteriorated in 2 eyes. The frequency of iritic attacks dec-reased after the surgery in 8 eyes and remain-ed the same in 5 eyes.
