A 14-year shooter came with a complaint of anisocoria noted incidentally in AADHAAR card iris scan. There is history of trauma 2 years back. Best corrected visual acuity OU is 6/6, N6. Anisocoria is present in bright and dim light with middilated pupil, not reacting to light. Old and new variable coin shaped keratic precipitates [Figure 1] are present with AC cells 0.5+ and iris atrophy at 7 o'clock in OS. Intraocular pressure in the right and left eye was 16 and 14 mmHg, respectively. Fundus was normal. AC tap on polymerase chain reaction revealed cytomegalovirus (CMV). Healed anterior CMV uveitis with traumatic iridoplegia in an immunocompetent patient was diagnosed. In an immunocompetent person, anterior uveitis and endotheliitis are the most common ocular manifestations., This is a unique case detected incidentally in North East India.
