Answer to Medical Quiz

The answer is #1 - Hyphema. This is a common condition and it looks worse than it is. Blood (from a broken vessel or trauma) layers in the front of the eye. If it pools over the sclera (white part of the eye) it looks like a bloody blotch and can be quite frightening. Like a bruise, it resolves without treatment.

For the other players - Hypopyon refers to pus. Iridocyclitis refers to inflammation of the iris (the round colored part of the eye). Iridodonesis is a quivering of the iris when the patient moves the eye. Synechia is an adhesion between the iris and the cornea.
