A case of orbital tuberculoma presenting with proptosis and gross diminution of vision in a young girl 20 years is reported. The tuberculoma disappeared within 3 months of antitubercular therapy and there was marked improvement in visual acuity. Because of its rarity in the younger age group, the case is being reported.
