Abstract
A descriptive study is presented on a case series of 3 patients, with IgM an IgG serology diagnosis of Chikungunya in whom other metabolic, autoimmune and infectious diseases were ruled out. They presented with other ocular manifestations with vascular changes and inflammatory characteristics. They were treated at the Retinovascular and Retinal and Vitreous clinics at the "Dr. Rodolfo Robles Valverde Hospital" and "Benemérito Comité Pro-ciegos y Sordos" in Guatemala City during 2019. Guatemala is a country with a high prevalence of vector-borne diseases, including chikungunya. In recent years cases of this disease has increased in recent years, and complications are currently seen more frequently. Within these complications, there have been reports of cases of optic neuritis, iridocyclitis, episcleritis, retinitis, uveitis, and blood dyscrasia that can affect the retina. It is important to consider these as an important differential diagnosis of ocular vascular alterations.
