Dental procedures, oral infections and poor oral hygiene can provoke the introduction of oral microorganisms into the blood stream or the lymphatic system. The subsequent attachment and multiplication of these bacteria on tissues or organs can lead to focal oral infections. Pathogenic agents also remain at their primary oral site but the toxins liberated can reach an organ or tissue via the bloodstream and cause injury. The present case report describes a rare case of Uveitis caused by a non vital tooth and its management. Clinical significance: An endodontists should be aware that, the odontogenic infections particularly a non vital tooth can also cause uveitis.
