Hypopyon is characterized by the presence of inflammatory cells, particularly leukocytes, in the anterior chamber of the eye and occurs rarely as a result of infectious causes. Hypopyon can lead to secondary glaucoma. Hypopyon is typically treated with anti-inflammatory medications, as it is an accumulation of inflammatory cells. Corneal ulcers, corneal abscesses, uveitis, and systemic illnesses commonly cause hypopyon.
