Any organ system in the body can be affected by tuberculosis (TB). While pulmonary TB is the most common presentation, extrapulmonary TB including ocular TB is also an important clinical problem. Most commonly, ocular TB presents as anterior uveitis or choroiditis, which is caused either by hematogenous infection or hypersensitivity after another organ infection. Eyelid involvement by TB is mostly secondary to orbital TB and often presents as a draining sinus. Isolated eyelid TB is, however, uncommon. We present the case of a 6-year-old girl with eyelid TB presenting as chronic nonhealing skin ulcer.
