Giant cerebellar tuberculoma in an immunocompetent female

Amit Agrawal.

Abstract
Incidence of neurotuberculosis has recently increased due to multiple factors. Sub-Saharan and Southeast Asian countries are the most affected with the predisposing factors being HIV/AIDS epidemic, poverty and multidrug resistant strains of mycobacterium. We describe a case of solitary cerebellar solid caseating tuberculoma in a young female patient in whom conventional MR imaging and MR spectroscopy helped in correct preoperative diagnosis.

Key words: Tuberculoma, cerebellar tuberculoma, immunocompetent
