Tuberculosis (TB) is the first infectious disease declared by the World Health Organization as a global health emergency. It remains the leading cause of death among infectious diseases causing more deaths worldwide than Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The following case report highlights the occult and non specific presentations of the disease which makes it a diagnostic challenge.We report a case of extensively disseminated tuberculosis in an immunocompetant young woman presenting as isolated optic neuritis. Extra pulmonary tuberculosis is commoner among immunocompromised patients .Co-existence of military and intracranial tuberculosis in an immunocompetent person is extremely rare.
