Ocular tuberculosis may affect virtually any intraocular tissue and ocular adnexa and usually manifest in the form of conjunctivitis, scleritis, episcleritis, corneal phlycten, interstitial keratitis, granulomatous uveitis, orbital granuloma, pan-ophthalmitis, and optic nerve involvement. However, primary eyelid tuberculosis is an extremely rare condition with only sporadic cases having been previously reported. Such a rare case identified in a 65 year old female is being reported here. Prompt diagnosis and institution of therapy are required in case of eyelid tuberculosis to avoid the serious consequences that occur in untreated cases.
