The incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in children is increasing. In the year 2000, 11% of the 8.3 million new cases of TB worldwide occurred in children less than 15 years of age. We describe a case of miliary cerebral and retinal TB that occurred in an immunocompetent adolescent who was treated with anti TB therapy for 14 months and had a complete resolution of the cerebral lesions.
