Core Tip The effectiveness of B-Raf proto-oncogene serine/threonine kinase (BRAF)/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK) inhibitor therapy in terms of prolonging survival has revolutionized the treatment of metastatic melanoma and other cancers. Consequently, widespread use in several metastatic cancers could be anticipated in the future. Therefore, all possible adverse effects should be described. We report a case of very rare and severe bilateral panuveitis with transient visual loss associated with treatment of metastatic malignant melanoma. The purpose of our case report is to raise awareness of possible severe bilateral panuveitis associated with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy and to show that ocular symptoms subside with BRAF/MEK inhibitor discontinuation and/or systemic corticosteroids. Further studies should establish guidelines for panuveitis management and evaluate the importance of ophthalmological examination for asymptomatic patients.
