Relevance. In this scientific work, we described the case of neurochorioretinitis in hiv-infected patient. A male patient T. M., 44 years old, came to our Center with the following symptoms in both eyes: blurred vision with floaters. According to the patient words, initial sign was a blurry vision in left eye, which was a five month ago. Moreover, he started noticing floaters in the left eye. testing for HIV infection showed a positive result, and therefore, this patient was referred for consultation and treatment with a virologist. Inflammatory conditions in the posterior segments of eyeball can be taken as an initial manifestation for common diseases, including HIV. Considering the above, in the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory pathologies of the organ of vision, not only the anterior, but also the posterior segment the HIV-alertness of an ophthalmologist can contribute to the early diagnosis of the disease, thereby saving the life of the patient.
