Abstract: We describe the first two cases of HTLV-1 associated uveitis to be associated with HTLV-1c subtype infection. Case report. Uveitis was demonstrated in two Indigenous Australian men, both of whom had high HTLV-1c proviral loads in peripheral blood. Visual outcomes were poor in each case. Clinicians should be aware of HTLV-1c infection as a cause of uveitis in Australia, and HTLV-1 serology should be included in the basic uveitis work-up in HTLV-1-endemic areas.
