Purpose: To describe an unusual variant of Yersinia-induced, HLA-B27 associated incomplete Reiter's syndrome with focal involvement of the posterior segment. Methods: Review of case records of a patient presenting with incomplete Reiter's syndrome which included a reactive arthritis with keratoconjunctivitis and anterior uveitis. Results: The uveitis progressed to involve the posterior segment with a vitritis and two transient white retinal spots. After resolving, a retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) defect persisted at the site of one of the lesions. Conclusions: While involvement of the anterior segment of the globe in Reiter's disease is well recognised, a review of the literature reveals that focal posterior involvement is a rare feature in either Reiter's syndrome or the reactive arthritis group.
