In this case report, we describe for the first time an association between transposition of the great arteries (TGAs), a congenital heart disease, and uveitis. We hope that this atypical finding in a patient with TGA will add to the clinical spectrum of ophthalmic conditions that can be seen with TGA. A 16-year-old boy, diagnosed and operated for TGA, presented with redness and pain in the left eye. The patient underwent complete ophthalmological and systemic examination. Detailed blood workup was done to rule out other causes of uveitis. A working diagnosis of bilateral nongranulomatous uveitis in status postopen-heart surgery was made, and the patient was successfully treated. Thus, uveitis can develop in patients with TGA, and prompt treatment can restore vision in these patients.
