Ashok Kumar Narsani, Shafi Muhammad Jatoi and Syed Asher Dabir.

Abstract
We report a case of a seventy years old lady of poor socioeconomic background who presented
with painless swelling of the right upper lid since one year. No other local or systemic features
were associated. An incisional biopsy was performed under local anaesthesia. Histopathological
examination revealed epitheloid granuloma with Langerhan’s giant cells suggestive of tuberculosis
of lid skin. The clinical events and pathological findings were suggestive of Mycobacterium
tuberculosis as the cause of infection. After diagnosis, the patient was referred to physician
for anti-tuberculosis therapy. The eyelid swelling resolved gradually and was completely
normal after 9 months of chemotherapy.

Key words: Tuberculosis. Eye. Biopsy. Management.
