Abstract

The 2013-2016 West African Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak has been the largest in history with 28,616 cases and 11,310 deaths in the highest transmission countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. Reports of uveitis have emerged in EVD survivors. Herein we discuss clinical features, multimodality imaging, and long-term management of aggressive, sight-threatening panuveitis, in an EVD survivor, providing insight into the pathogenesis of this condition.
