We report two cases of uveo-meningeal syndrome involving the retina, uvea, and optic disc in both eyes after viral meningitis. CASE SUMMARY: A 16-year-old female was referred to our department with blurred vision in both eyes. She was hospitalized in the pediatric ward with viral meningitis. She showed a norma best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and normal intraocular pressure in both eyes, but had severe inflammation in the anterior chamber on slit lamp examination, and optic disc edema and multiple whitish lesions on fundus examination. She was treated with intravenous antibiotic injections and steroid eye drops. After close observation, inflammation in the anterior chamber, optic disc edema, and the multiple whitish lesions in the retina were improved. A 27-year-old male who was treated for viral meningitis at the neurology department was referred to us with blurred vision in both eyes. His BCVAs were 0.7 (right eye) and 0.6 (left eye). The intraocular pressure was normal in both eyes. Slit lamp examination revealed inflammation in the anterior chamber and optic disc edema, and a fundus examination revealed multiple infiltrations. He received treatment for presumed herpes virus infection. After close observation, inflammation in the anterior chamber, optic disc edema, and multiple infiltrations with hemorrhage in the retina were improved. CONCLUSIONS: Clinicians should consider the possibility of uveo-meningeal syndrome, which can cause inflammation in the uvea,retina, and optic disc simultaneous with viral meningitis accompanying blurred vision.
