Abstract: A healthy newborn baby girl presented with congenital bilateral cataract. Within a few days of presenting she also developed bilateral granulomatous uveitis, a condition generally linked in newborns to congenital infections, most frequently TORCHES syndrome (toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalic inclusion disease, herpesvirus, including Epstein-Barr, syphilis). Extensive investigation did not reveal any underlying etiologic mechanism. Treatment with topical and systemic steroids did not improve the uveitis. However, bilateral lens extraction resulted in a quick resolution of the uveitis.
