Tuberculosis (TB) is an endemic disease in many countries of the developing world and is associated with severe morbidity and mortality. Intraocular tuberculosis (IOTB) is a rare condition that may present with severe visual debilitating symptoms and often presents as a diagnostic challenge due to its protean manifestations (Gupta et al. 2007, 2015b). IOTB often presents as posterior uveitis (Gupta et al. 2015b). Thus, early recognition of IOTB and its prompt management with specific therapy are an important aspect of uveitis practice especially in developing countries.
