Purpose: To describe drug-induced uveitis in immunocompromised patients diagnosed with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection Methods: Narrative Review Results: Systemic and intraocular medications administered for the treatment of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-associated diseases in patients infected with HIV are a well-known cause of uveitis. Conclusions: Cidofovir and rifabutin, among other novel anti-retroviral therapies, are strongly associated with drug-induced uveitis. It is imperative to understand the pathogenesis, clinical findings, and management of HIV patients with uveitis induced by these agents.
