  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed three cases of relapsing polychondritis with ocular complications. They were a 56-year-old female and two males aged 21 and 23 years each. Recurrent episcleritis was the major finding in 2 cases. It was brought under control by topical corticosteroid. Secondary glaucoma developed in one of the 2 cases. The third case manifested recurrent episcleritis, irits, retinal phlebitis and papillitis which responded to topical corticosteroid. These cases illustrate that various ocular complications may develop in cases of relapsing polychondritis.
