The cytologic analysis of intraocular fluids obtained during vitreous surgery and anterior chamber aspiration can confirm the diagnosis of many intraocular conditions, including phacolytic glaucoma, fungal infection, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, intraocular neoplasm, ghost-cell glaucoma and certain inflammatory conditions. This paper describes our technique for processing intraocular fluids for cytologic examination and presents our findings in over 300 intraocular fluid specimens.
