Intracranial tuberculomas are uncommon yet devastating forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis with a high mortality rate and morbidity risk. A high level of suspicion is required for a prompt diagnosis and treatment.
A 67-year-old male, medically free, presented at the Emergency Department with a 1-day history of nausea and vomiting, and a 15-day history of imbalance and dizziness. Radiological imaging demonstrated right well-defined ring-enhancing lesions. He underwent a sup-occipital craniotomy with lesion resection. The diagnosis of an intracranial tuberculoma was confirmed histopathologically. Anti-tuberculosis therapy was prescribed, and the patient was discharged with mild cerebellar dysfunction.
Intracranial tuberculomas have a high rate of mortality and morbidity. It is critical to consider tuberculoma in the differential diagnosis of intracranial lesions with such clinico-radiological characteristics, especially in developing countries.
In this article, we are reporting an interesting case with multiple intracranial tuberculomas with an extensive review of the literature.
