Clinical case: We describe the case of a man who, after a gunshot wound to the right facial region, exhibited chorioretinitis sclopetaria of the right eye and a contralateral homonymous hemianopsia. Discussion: Chorioretinitis sclopetaria is a rare entity resulting from an ocular injury caused by a bullet passing through the orbit. It is not common to find the condition associated with a damaged visual field caused by the subsequent path traversed and lodging of that bullet in the brain.
