A 75-year-old woman presented at the eye clinic of the University of llorin Teaching Hospital with swelling of the left eyelids and protrusion of the left eyeball. The swelling was painless. Physical examination revealed no systemic abnormality. An incisional biopsy of the lid swelling revealed tuberculous orbital involvement. She responded well to anti-tuberculosis therapy, with regression of the lid swelling and proptosis. The importance of including intraorbital tuberculosis as a differential of orbital swelling in the environment is emphasised.
