Although it is not common, impairment of eye in autoimmune inflammatory diseases can become very severe by its evolution and complications. Often eye disorders within the autoimmune inflammatory diseases are not correctly diagnosed. These disorders are usually diagnosed as independent entities and thus local corrective treatment is the only applied. In these situations the evolution of uveitis can be toward blindness. The case presented by us unfortunately fits into this typology of local treatment with repeated surgical interventions without encouraging results. At time of diagnosis the patient completely loses sight in one eye and at the other it dropped to below 50%. In 1907 Rudyard Kipling got the Nobel Prize for his novel'' The Light That Failed'', whose main character lost view but from other reasons than our patient.
