Inflammation of sclera with involvement of uvea is an uncommon and underdiagnosed disease entity seen in an ophthalmological outpatient setting. A 34-year-old male presented with complaints of headache, redness, pain, photophobia, and blurring of vision in the left eye > right eye with associated tinnitus, decreased hearing, and recurrent severe headaches over 3 months. Detailed ophthalmological examination revealed signs of sclerouveitis. We thoroughly investigated the patient which revealed manifestations of incomplete VKH syndrome, along with strongly positive mantoux test hence, he was started on oral steroids under antituberculous treatment cover after physician consult. On follow-up, the patient was symptomatically better with resolution of inflammatory signs over a period of 3 months. The patient is being followed up by multispecialty approach to discern VKH manifestations of later disease.
