CASTILLO VARONA, Eduardo  and  TOLEDANO GRAVE DE PERALTA, Yanara. Palpebral tuberculosis in an elderly. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp. 248-251. ISSN 1029-3019.

The clinical case of a 70-year-old man from a community of Timor Leste is reported, who attended the outpatient department, where the Cuban medical brigade worked, due to enlargement of cervical lymph nodes and eyelids for 5 months. Taking into account the clinical epidemiological diagnosis and the response to the used treatment, it is concluded that it was palpebral tuberculosis. This affection is so uncommon that it motivated its description to be published.

Keywords : elderly; palpebral tuberculosis; Cuban medical brigade; Timor Leste.
