Uveitis and Systemic Inflammatory Markers in Convalescent Phase of Ebola Virus Disease
School of Medicine; Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology; Department of Family Medicine and Community Health
We report a case of probable Zaire Ebola virus–related ophthalmologic complications in a physician from the United States who contracted Ebola virus disease in Liberia. Uveitis, immune activation, and nonspecific increase in antibody titers developed during convalescence. This case highlights immune phenomena that could complicate management of Ebola virus disease–related uveitis during convalescence.
