He developed recurrent inflammation in the same eye in a span of 2 years, later complicated with retinal vasculitis. On evaluation, he was diagnosed with tubercular uveitis and started on antitubercular treatment along with systemic steroids. Inview of Increased IOP due to steroid response, Inj. Secukinumab ( IL 17 A inhibitor) was started and significant improvement was noted.
