Background: We described a rare case of whitish hyphema, resulted from spontaneous chylaemia of anterior chamber in uncontrolled diabetic hyperlipidemia. Case Report: A 45-year-old man presented acute blurred vision and whitish left eye for 2 days, without any pain or discomfort, no ocular trauma and surgery history. The visual acuity was handmovement and Intraocular Pressure (IOP) was 37.1 mmHg. The visual acuity and IOP restored in several days with spontaneous resolution of the milky fluid. Biochemistry tests proved the milky fluid was chylaemia of anterior chamber. A fluorescein angiography and irrigation operation was performed, which revealed it came from rupture of iris capillary. Conclusion: Milky fluid in anterior chamber probably imply a special type of hyphema resulted from uncontrolled diabetic retinopathy and hyperlipidemia.
