Recently, Lodhi SA and colleagues have reported on a patient with choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) associated with tubercular granuloma, who responded to intravitreal bevacizumab injections. The available literature regarding CNVM associated with intraocular tuberculosis is briefly discussed. Choroidal neovascular membrane is a possible complication of choroidal tuberculosis and the patients should be informed about this risk. However, patients usually respond well to intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents as evidenced by the case reported by us and the current case reported by Lodhi et al.
I read with interest the report on choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM)  in intraocular tuberculosis (IOTB) which responded to 4 bevacizumab injections. I humbly want to discuss a few facts.
