  • CLINICAL AND RADIOGRAPHIC FINDINGS IN DISSEMINATED TUBERCULOSIS OF THE BRAIN NEUROLOGY Eide, F. F., Gean, A. D., So, Y. T. 1993; 43 (7): 1427-1429

    Abstract:

    We report clinical and radiographic findings in a patient with disseminated tuberculosis (TB) of the brain. A Burmese man developed a left hemiparesis and mild cognitive difficulty 1 month into therapy for miliary TB. A head MRI showed numerous (> 100) contrast-enhancing supratentorial and infratentorial lesions. Following 9 months of treatment with isoniazid, ethambutol, rifampin, and pyrazinamide, most lesions resolved; however, one cortical tuberculoma enlarged significantly. The patient was continued on isoniazid and rifampin, with radiographic resolution of the tuberculoma 4 months later.
