    ABSTRACT: A 68-year-old man was referred to the hospital with progressive decreased vision in the right eye over the past year. A moderate cataract and annular choroidal thickening were found. The diagnosis of uveal effusion was confirmed by ultrasound and fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography. Laboratory studies showed an IgM lambda subtype monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance. The patient underwent cataract surgery, and a sub-Tenon's triamcinolone injection with a satisfactory short-term outcome. This association has not been previously reported, and it shows that IgM lambda subtype monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance should be added to the list of disorders associated with uveal effusion.
