Eight-year old warmblood mare that presented for chronic-acute, recurrent anterior uveitis in the left eye (OS). Negative c-value for Leptospira. a. Initial presentation: Two days following the onset of an acute bout of inflammation. Topical and systemic therapy were initiated by the referring veterinarian, when ocular signs were first identified. Inflammation was controlled via medical therapy. b1. Seven months after initial presentation: Active uveitis OS; + 4/4 flare, fibrin and complete miosis were present. b2. Infrared picture of OS at the same examination as in B1. c. Uveitis was controlled within 5 days of initiating medical therapy. d. Recurrent acute inflammation: 14 months later. Intravitreal gentamicin injection (IVGI) and aqueocentesis were performed. e. Ninety-eight days post-IVGI OS: Uveitis has remained controlled following IVGI. A focal area of tapetal hyperreflectivity identified during indirect ophthalmoscopy of the fundus. f. Fundus image of the lesion described in e. Retinal degeneration developed between the 30- and 98- day recheck examination. Subjective vision status unchanged from pre-IVGI. g. Two-hundred-seventy days post-IVGI OS: Uveitis controlled. Retinal degeneration remains static. h. Three-hundred-eighty-five days post-IVGI OS: Uveitis remains controlled. Retinal degeneration remains static
