    A 20-year-old Japanese man had generalised miliary tuberculosis. Although he had no ocular symptoms, choroidal miliary tuberculosis with pleomorphic findings, including disseminated choroidal haemorrhages, was noted in both fundi. The haemorrhages disappeared as the patient's condition improved on medical therapy. Disseminated choroidal haemorrhages should be looked for in patients with miliary tuberculosis.
