Abstract
Nodular episcleritis when recurrent and bilateral, needs to be investigated. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis with scleral manifestations is rarely reported. Herein, we present a case of tubercular nodular episcleritis in a 12-year-old young girl with positive tuberculin gold test and strong mantoux positive, responded very well to anti tubercular treatment with topical steroid treatment and no relapse of symptoms noted at 1 year follow up.
