The aim of this communication was to report the fundus fluorescein angiography findings in three patients with choroidal tubercles. In all cases, there was a marked peritubercular inflammation. The tubercles themselves showed an initial hypofluorescence or minimal hyperfluorescence that increased in the late phases. Clinicians need to be familiar with these new findings as they may help in the diagnosis of ocular tuberculosis.
