Koeppe's nodules are small nodules seen at the inner margin of the iris in patients with granulomatous anterior uveitis, which occurs in conditions such as sarcoidosis and tuberculosis.[1] The nodules are composed of epithelioid cells and giant cells surrounded by lymphocytes.[2]

Koeppe's nodules are named after Leonhard Koeppe.
