Patients with tubercular uveitis can present in a myriad of clinical findings. Tubercular retinal vasculitis (TRV) mimicking frosted branch angiitis (FBA) is sparsely reported in literature. However, TRV in the background of benign familial fleck retina simulating FBA is never reported. We report a patient of TRV from a tubercular endemic region, supported by ancillary investigations like fundus fluorescein angiography and fundus autofluorescence. The patient was diagnosed as a case of “possible intraocular tuberculosis.” She was managed with systemic and topical steroids along with antitubercular therapy and had a favorable outcome.
