We report a rare ocular manifestation of relapsing polychondritis. A 28-year-old woman presented with a 5-year history of relapsing polychondritis with chondritis of the nose, ears and tracheobronchial system. The ocular symptoms were bilateral uveitis with macular involvement and papillaedema. Ocular manifestations of relapsing polychondritis occur in 60% of patients. Uveitis is a rare symptom, sometimes severe, which can lead to blindness. This case report with a literature review sheds light on the features of this disease.
