Summary:

In spite  of  the  amount  of  anatomical  studies  that  have  been  made regardingthe   amphibian   eye,   relatively   little   has   been   written   about   clinical manifestations  or  diseases  affecting  the  eye of  members  of  this  animal  Class.Moreover,  the  majority  of  research  has  focused  on  ocular  diseases  or  lesions  of amphibians   kept   in   captivity.   We   report   on   a   wild   Mountain   chicken   frog (Leptodactylus  fallax), a  critically  endangered  species,  with  alesion  in  the  left  eye. Additionally, we developed a list ofpossible differential diagnosis for the ophthalmic lesion.We intend to bridge the available knowledge on this topic and understand the problems affecting wild free ranging individuals.
