    Ocular tuberculosis: Clinicopathologic assortment and diagnostic challenges

    Priyatam Khadka* and Ranju Kharel

    Ocular tuberculosis is an exigent clinical entity—lacking a distinct clinical presentation and attributing the diagnostic conundrum. Nevertheless, the early-precise diagnosis with implicated anti-tubercular therapy may be sight-saving; diagnostic delays often encountered due to protean clinical presentations, the impracticability of obtaining tissue (in most case), limitation on sample volume extraction, and of wanting a sensitive diagnostic test. This article revises the current scenario of ocular tuberculosis, its clinicopathologic arrays, and diagnostic challenges for clinical management; Furthermore, advocates for compiling all such positive findings of corroborative tests in a precise diagnosis.
