Abstract

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, leading to the formation of foci of demyelination. Ocular involvement is quite frequent and multiple, dominated by inflammatory optic neuropathies, oculomotor nerve damage, nystagmus and uveitis. We report an atypical case of multiple sclerosis revealed by an anterior unilateral synechiatic hypertensive uveitis in a young patient of 27 years.


Keywords: Uveitis, muliples sclerosis, demyelination
