Abstract: 

Purpose: To describe a case of bilateral presumed tuberculous choroiditis which resolved promptly with a short course of antituberculous therapy.
Case Report: A 44?year?old lady presented with bilateral visual loss of 8 months’duration. Considering the presence of pan?uveitis, severe macular edema, multifocal leakage on fluorescein angiography, positive tuberculin skin test, and after excluding other diseases, she underwent anti?tuberculous therapy (ATT) for disseminated choroiditis due to presumed ocular tuberculosis. She improved promptly and completely.
There were no signs of relapse 18 months after completion of the treatment course. In a young patient with disseminated choroiditis and relatively short duration of symptoms, a course of ATT for 6 months may effectively treat the disease preventing relapse for a considerable period of time.
Conclusion: In Presumed Tuberculous chroiditis early diagnosis is crucial for prompt and complete improvement.
