 Mild toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS) developed after Sustained-release Dexamethasone Intravitreal Implant, during the early post-implantation period. Prompt treatment started with topical antibiotics and steroid eye drop after subconjunctival injection. The signs and symptoms of inflammation were resolved with total remission on post-implantation day 10. To the best of our knowledge, the presented case is the first report with TASS following sustained-release dexamethasone intravitreal implant.
