Results: There were 9 (45%)  female and 11(55%) male patients with the mean  age of 40±16 years. Mean follow up time was 20±11 months. All of the patients had different levels of anterior chamber inflamation and 10 (50%) patients had  keratic presipitate. Twelve (60%) patients had corneal involvment; 7 of them had epitelyal keratitis and 5 of them had corneal scar. Nine (45%) patients had segmental  iris atropy, 6 30(%) patients had posterior synechia. Two (10%) patients had intraocular pressure elevation during this period. All patients treated with topical steroid and sistemic anti viral agents. Recurrence was devoloped in 10 (50%) patients during this period.
