Published in the Therapeutic Advances in Ophthalmology, the authors share the results of a 3-year-long follow-up of a 23-year old female patient with BADI. She was admitted with a complaint of discoloration of both her brown irises.

An ocular evaluation of the patient revealed symmetrical pigment deposition in trabecular meshwork. No iris transillumination defect, pupillary sphincter paralysis, keratic precipitates, and inflammatory reaction in anterior chamber were seen.
