Abstract

Purpose:To report a case of presumed intraretinal tuberculosis evaluated with optical coherence tomography angiography.Methods:Case report.Results:A 61-year-old woman recently immigrated from China presented with round yellow-white retinal lesions in the left eye. The lesions were evaluated with multimodal imaging, including optical coherence tomography angiography. Subsequent serologic testing revealed a positive QuantiFERON-TB Gold test, whereas workup for other entities was negative. The patient was diagnosed with presumed intraretinal tuberculosis. She was started on systemic antitubercular therapy and the lesions regressed. The regression was documented with optical coherence tomography angiography.Conclusion:Case reports of primary intraretinal tuberculosis are uncommon. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case to demonstrate optical coherence tomography angiography findings of presumed intraretinal tuberculosis.
