Sympathetic ophthalmia is a dreaded ocular condition resulting in bilateral panuveitis following penetrating injury in one eye or associated with surgeries and laser procedures. We describe a case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with blurring of vision in the right eye for the past 2 years following penetrating trauma in the left eye 9 years back. Histopathology of left enucleated phthisical eye showed diffuse stromal choroiditis with B-cell proliferation on immunohistochemistry, thus confirming chronicity of the disease.
