Ocular involvement has been reported very rarely and it may be observed as conjunctivitis, vesiculer lesions in the conjuntiva, corneal involvement and keratouveitis
Other ophthalmologic signs include eyelid lesions [82,83], keratouveitis
, keratoconjunctivitis sicca , punctate epithelial erosions [80, 84], corneal ulceration/scarring , and dysplastic conjunctival lesions resembling ocular surface squamous neoplasia .
Keratoconjunctivitis, keratitis (dendritic ulcers) or keratouveitis
Ophthalmic infections known to occur with HSV include blepharoconjunctivitis, keratouveitis
, acquired ankyloblepharon, and membranous tarsal plaque.
A case of vaccinia keratouveitis
has been reported after accidental ocular autoinoculation from a recent vaccination site (6).
However, ocular herpes infection, specifically keratouveitis
