A 28-year-old male presents to the Emergency Department (ED) with slowly-worsening 2-day history of photophobia, redness and a reduced visual acuity of his right eye.

He denies any discharge, eye pain, headaches, or recent ocular surgery. He is currently receiving antituberculosis therapy following confirmed renal tuberculosis. On slit lamp examination, the cornea is clear, but you can see scattered cells in the anterior chamber. You also note some mutton-fat keratic precipitate as well as posterior synechiae at 8 oclock. You see no hypopyon nor any evidence of vitritis or retinitis on fundal examination.
