Next, a report is made of a clinical case of a male patient who was admitted to our institution with a suspected diagnosis of a transient cerebrovascular event together with visual disorders that, upon detailed examination, revealed damage to the anterior chamber of the eye, giving as a diagnosis Uveitis being the same an ophthalmological pathology of meticulous treatment and delicate progression to blindness if it is not treated properly. Additionally, its etiology could be determined as a viral whose causative agent was Herpes Virus 1. This case is presented as the objective of the appropriate determination of ophthalmological pathology, always seeking in this way more detail to the physical examination and the anamnesis around patients suffering from other pathologies and the aforementioned diagnosis goes unnoticed.
