Abstract

A tuberculoma is a relatively rare variant of tuberculosis, and sometimes resembles a meningioma in the
first instance, both radiologically and in gross appearance. Here we report a case of 59 year old man
presenting with pyrexia of unknown origin since 1 month. On MRI brain, it was suggestive of meningioma,
but CSF analysis was suggestive of tuberculosis and patient responded with anti tubercular treatment.

Keywords: Tuberculoma, Meningioma, Pyrexia of unknown origin.
