Abstract

A 5-year-old male patient presented to the Sekuru Kaguvi Eye Hospital (SKH) with a painful discharging right eye (RE) for 1 year. Two months prior to presentation, he developed a nonproductive cough, night sweats and loss of weight. On examination, a granulomatous follicular conjunctivitis and a corneal phlyctenule were noted in the RE, as well as ipsilateral preauricular lymphadenopathy. In collaboration with the paediatricians, a diagnosis of Parinaud’s oculoglandular syndrome (POGS) as a manifestation of tuberculosis was made. This is the first reported case of POGS and tuberculosis in Zimbabwe.
