  • May be found as:
    • Koeppe nodules (inflammatory cell precipitates which lie at the pupillary margin and could be found in non-granulomaous as well as granulomatous uveitis)
    • Bussaca nodules (lie on the iris surface) which are pathognomonic for granulomatous uveitis.
  • When the inflammation is treated, the nodules will resolve.
