    A reverse hypopyon due to emulsification of silicone oil in anterior chamber. Silicone oil floats therefore we see emulsified silicone bubbles coalesced in a layer in the upper portion of the anterior chamber (AC). Typically, hypopyon is seen in AC located as a white layer located inferiorly secondary to inflammation- white cells in AC. Key words: Hypopyon, Reverse Hypopyon, Inverse Hypopyon; Hyperoleon.
