    A 37-year-old immunocompromised HIV1 patient presented with a tubercular granulomatous anterior unilateral uveitis. He had significant posterior synechiae over the superior half of the pupil. Management was an 8-month antituberculous treatment. For the first 2 months, the patient took a combination of isoniazid (INH), rifampicin (RMP), pyrazinamide (PZN), and ethambutol (EMB), and for the remaining 6 months, he took (INH) and rifampicin (RMP). Topical cyclopentolate was administered to the patient, leading to the breaking of the posterior synechiae.
