Prateeksha Sharma, JL Goyal and Simmy Chaudhary

Orbital and Periorbital involvement of tuberculosis is rare even in endemic regions. It is a rare manifestation of extra pulmonary tuberculosis. We report a rare case of discharging Periorbital tuberculosis sinus with no systemic symptoms. Our report emphasises the importance of awareness and high clinical suspicion in cases of nonresolving orbital swellings and infections. It also emphasizes the role of detailed investigations for early diagnosis and prompt treatment of the disease.
