Figure 3: Histopathologic examination of the globe revealed (a) marked distruption of the architecture with scleral perforation (H and E). Inset shows infiltrating polymorphonuclear leukocytes in the anterior chamber. (b) Modified Fite stain shows acid-fast bacilli predominantly in the infiltrating macrophages and PMNs within the anterior chamber exudates. Inset shows a higher magnification view of this. (c) Sclera revealed an infiltration of foamy, granular macrophages, and lymphocytes (H and E). Inset shows AFB within the macrophages. (d) Long ciliary nerves within anterior choroid revealed AFB
