TUBERCULOUS PHLYCTENULAR KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS OF BOTH EYES
(CLINICAL CASE)

Resume: This article describes a clinical case of tuberculous phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis of both eyes, which developed
against the background of a recurrence of infiltrative tuberculosis of the right lung. This case is notable for the active nature
of the specific process in both the eyes and the lungs. Although ocular tuberculosis typically develops later, this case suggests
that it can occur earlier in patients with slow blood flow in the eyeball.
Keywords: clinical case, ocular tuberculosis, phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis
