Abstract: 

Purpose: To report an unusual presentation of tuberculosis.
Case Report: A six-year old boy presented with left upper lid swelling of 15 days’ duration and an asymptomatic midline neck mass from 2 months ago. Imaging studies, and microbiologic tests which demonstrated acid-fast bacilli in the fine needle aspirate of the thyroid mass, both confirmed a diagnosis of cold tuberculous thyroid abscess with presumed hematogenous spread to the orbit. The patient demonstrated marked improvement of both lesions with antitubercular drugs.
Conclusion: This case illustrates a very rare association of orbital and thyroid tuberculosis.
