Akut iridocyclitis med feber og leverpåvirkning ved kinidinbehandling


Acute iridocyclitis is a rare hypersensitive reaction to quinidine treatment. The third case in the literature is reported here. A woman aged 80 years developed pyrexia, anorexia, nausea, skin rash and hepatic dysfunction after treatment with quinidine for two weeks. Four weeks later, while still receiving quinidine, she developed acute iridocyclitis. Quinidine treatment was withdrawn, the eye symptoms were treated and the patient recovered rapidly without complications. This case report draws attention to quinidine as a possible cause of iridocyclitis of unknown origin.
