The purpose is to report a rare case of letrozole-induced bilateral acute intermediate uveitis (IU) with cystoid macular edema (CME). A 29 years old female undergoing infertility treatment came with complaints of progressive diminution of vision in both eyes. Clinical evaluation and optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed IU with CME in both eyes. Intravitreal steroid injections and discontinuation of oral letrozole led to the resolution of IU with CME. Thus, all patients who are treated with letrozole should undergo periodic ophthalmic screening for timely diagnosis and treatment.
