Uveitis associated with rifabutin treatment is a well-known adverse effect in adults with human immunodeficiency virus infection. In children, however, uveitis related to rifabutin has been reported in only a few cases. We present a case of rifabutin-associated uveitis in a human immunodeficiency virus-negative child. We review the literature and discuss special precautions to be considered when children are treated with rifabutin.
