Preretinal exudates have been described in various ocular diseases. We present a case of preretinal exudates in tubercular retinal vasculitis with an inflammatory choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM). The patient was treated with a tapering dose of oral corticosteroids, antitubercular therapy. Inflammatory CNVM which develops in active disease or during regression can be treated with intravitreal bevacizumab. In our case, the resolution of exudates was seen within 8 weeks of starting the treatment without any scar formation. In conclusion, we report a picture of exudates in a novel plane (preretinal) concerning tubercular vasculitis.
