Abstract

A patient with multiple intracranial tuberculomas mimicking aneurysms is reported. The diagnosis was established by CT during the treatment of tuberculous meningitis. Anti-tuberculous therapy was continued until the radiological resolution of the lesions. A discussion of previous reports on the non-operative treatment of intracranial tuberculomas is included. © 1993 Springer-Verlag.
