George, Peter; Agrawal, Amit; Kumar, Sampath; Shetty, J.P. & Shetty, Rajesh K.
Central nervous system (CNS) tuberculosis commonly manifests as tubercular meningitis CNS tuberculomas are more common intracranially and less frequently involve the spinal cord. We report an unusual case of CNS tuberculosis presented with predominant features of tubercular meningitis with concurrent intra-cranial and intra-medullary tuberculomas in any evidence of pulmonary disease. Most noticeable feature of this patient was lower motor neuron type of bladder involvement in the beginning of clinical deterioration that led to the discovery of intra-spinal tuberculoma.
