dc.description.abstractThe epidemic of Zika virus infection in Brazil has lead to the description of new complications and manifestations such as Guillain-Barré syndrome in adults and microcephaly in newborns. Zika virus is a flavivirus transmitted to humans primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. It was first isolated and described in Africa, later spreading to Asia, Micronesia, Oceania, and to the Americas. It is thought that only 1 in 5 people infected with the Zika virus will become symptomatic((3)). The most common systemic manifestations include: fever, arthralgia, malaise, and skin rash. More recently, retinal abnormalities were described in children with microcephaly attributed to Zika virus infection during pregnancy. The purpose of this letter is to describe a case of bilateral hypertensive iridocyclitis attributed to Zika virus in an otherwise healthy young male.en_US
