Differential diagnosis of optic nerve swelling

A patient with HIV/AIDS presented with miliary TB, a cerebral lesion and a swollen optic nerve. On anti-TB therapy, the cerebral and optic nerve lesions initially worsened. Biopsy of the optic nerve was undertaken to exclude other disorders but only showed necrosis. Anti-TB therapy was continued and with time all lesions resolved.
