Hansen's disease is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae which is known to affect the cooler regions of the body. Posterior segment involvement is very rare. We present a case of a leprosy patient with a posterior segment manifestation, panuveitis, and anterior uveitis. The disease is still a significant health problem in developing countries like India. Even completion of anti-leprosy multidrug therapy does not seem to prevent the development of disabilities. Hence, early recognition with proper management is essential.
