Abstract :
We describe a 34-year-old woman with isolated tuberculosis (TB) uveitis who had unsuccessful resolution of her ocular surface squamous neoplasia after multiple shave excisions with a positive purified protein derivative (PPD) test and interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) release assays (IGRAs) proven tuberculosis. She was managed with wide local excision of the lesion. Histopathology confirmed conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade II. Topical interferon alpha-2b (4 times daily) and anti-tuberculous therapy was planned for her, and there was no sign of recurrence of the lesion at six months follow-up.
