Purpose: To describe a case of Rosai-Dorfman-associated sclerouveitis in an HIV-infected patient. Design: Case report. Methods: A 49-year-old man with HIV had bilateral eye pain, redness, photophobia, and multiple systemic complaints. He underwent serial ocular examinations, abdomen/pelvis CT scan, and lymph node biopsy. Results: Ophthalmologic evaluation revealed bilateral, nongranulomatous anterior uveitis and anterior scleritis. Biopsy of a retroperitoneal lymph node identified on CT revealed mixed inflammatory infiltrate composed of histiocytes, lymphocytes, and plasma cells involving fibroadipose tissue, indicating Rosai-Dorfman disease. Conclusions: This is the first report of sclerouveitis in Rosai-Dorfman disease. Rosai-Dorfman is typically self-limiting, occurring rarely in HIV.
