Intraocular hypertension developed in 3 cases after anterior subtenon injections of triamcinolone acetonide as treatment for intractable uveitis. Case 1 was a 12-year-old girl with bilateral uveitis of unknown etiology. Anterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide was performed in her right eye. Rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) was detect-ed 1 month later, which lasted until the triam-cinolone acetonide eventually disappeared. Case 2 was a 16-year-old girl with bilateral peripheral uveitis. Rise in IOP developed after two injections of triamcinolone acetonide in her right eye. The IOP returned to normal after surgical removal of the steroid. Case 3 was a 43-year-old male with Behçet disease. He underwent anterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide in his right eye during an acute attack. Intractable rise in IOP ensued, Surgical removal of the steroid resulted in normalization of IOP.
