New-onset clinical or radiological symptoms in a patient with tuberculosis pose diagnostic treatment challenges, which can be due to treatment failure, disease relapse, or paradoxical response. We describe an adolescent case of recurrent paradoxical response complicating tuberculous meningitis. The first paradoxical tuberculosis presented as chest wall abscess, which was complicated by uniocular, gradually progressive, painless loss of vision after 6 months.
