Abstract

We report a case of a young male from Udupi, Karnataka, presenting with features of bilateral non-granulomatous anterior uveitis with mild vitritis. There was a history of fever and myalgia a month before ocular features, which was partially treated. He also gave a history of being actively involved in the flood relief work in the district, before the onset of fever. This prompted an evaluation of leptospirosis, which came positive. The possibility of leptospira uveitis needs to be considered, especially in cases of non-granulomatous uveitis after floods in areas endemic for leptospirosis, which may otherwise be wrongly labeled idiopathic.
