We report a rare presentation of Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome in a patient with tubercular panuveitis. A 45-year-old male being treated with antitubercular therapy for tubercular panuveitis presented with unilateral, non-pitting right upper eyelid edema. Excision biopsy showed granulomatous inflammation involving the lymphatics. Immunohistochemistry confirmed the presence of histiocytes around the lymphatics.
