Eales disease, which is reported mainly in patients from the Indian subcontinent, is characterized by ophthalmic abnormalities that are sometimes followed by neurologic sequelae, and it is associated with previous Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. We describe the first patient, to our knowledge, to receive a diagnosis of active tuberculosis and concurrent, severe neurological Eales disease, including peripheral neuropathy. The patient recovered completely after receiving steroid therapy.
