Özet

A 54-year-old male patient presented with a sudden painless visual loss in his left eye. Ophthalmic examinations revealed panuveitis, ischaemic central retinal vein occlusion, multiple chorioretinitis and retinal vasculitis. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was confirmed with anterior tap analysis and QuantiFERON-TB test. Anti-tuberculosis treatment and intravitreal anti-vasculature endothelial growth factor therapy were performed.
