We are reporting a case of rifabutin-induced uveitis in a woman with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-tuberculosis (TB) coinfection involving the right hip. Identifying the culprit drug and tailoring the appropriate regimen was a challenge to the clinicians. We described the clinical features, ophthalmological findings, laboratory findings and radiological findings in skeletal TB and follow-up in a woman with HIV-TB coinfection. Improvement of vision on stopping rifabutin with rifampicin confirmed our diagnosis. This case highlights about adverse drug reactions and drug interactions in case of HIV and TB coinfection. Patients receiving therapy with combinations of any of these agents should be warned about signs and symptoms of uveitis and monitored closely for the development of rifabutin toxicity.
