Summary: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. It is typically first manifestation in young adults between 20 and 40 years of age. Although optic neuritis is considered to be the most frequent ocular manifestation of multiple sclerosis, the significant number of MS patients has intermediate uveitis. Incidence of this uveitis in patients with multiple sclerosis varied from 3% to 28%. This similarity between multiple sclerosis and intermediate uveitis is the association of both with the major histocompatibility complex gene HLA-DR2. This case study describes one such patients with intermediate uveitis, which is one of the sclerosis multiplex manifestations.
