The left eye manifested severe vitreous opacity with hypopyon. Multifocal choroiditis with patchy exudates and hemorrhage temporal to the macula in the right eye.

Under the tentative diagnosis of metastatic uvei-tis, the left eye was treated by vitrectomy. The vit-reous culture revealed growth of Bacillus cereus.
