Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) is the first infectious disease declared by the World Health Organization as a global health mergency. It remains the leading cause of death among infectious diseases causing more deaths worldwide thanĀ uman immune deficiency virus (HIV) [1]. The following case report highlights the occult and non specificĀ  resentations of the disease which makes it a diagnostic challenge. We report a case of extensively disseminated tuberculosis in an immune competent post partum young woman presenting as isolated optic neuritis. Extra pulmonary tuberculosis is commoner among immune compromised patients. Co-existence of military and intracranial tuberculosis in an immune competent person is extremely rare.
