In this paper, we investigate a SEILR tuberculosis model incorporating the effect of seasonal fluctuation, where the loss of sight class is considered. The basic reproduction number $R_{0}$ is defined. It is shown that the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable and the disease eventually disappears if $R_{0}<1$, and there exists at least one positive periodic solution and the disease is uniformly persistent if $R_{0}>1$. Numerical simulations are provided to illustrate analytical results.
