Abstract

An Interesting Case of Intracranial Tuberculoma with Spinal Tuberculous Spondylitis in a Patient with Muscular Dystrophy

Kalyani J*, Saravanan S and Narayanan S

This case describes an unusual or novel occurrence. An unexpected association between intracranial tuberculoma and spinal tuberculosis. This is an unexpected event in the course observing and treating a patient with muscular dystrophy. We report a case combination of spinal tuberculous spondylitis and intracranial tuberculoma which is extremely rare. So far only five cases have been reported in the literature. 32-year-old female who is a known case of muscular dystrophy presenting with fever, diplopia, low back ache and motor weakness of both upper and lower extremities based on magnetic resonance imaging and polymerase chain reaction, we diagnosed as tuberculoma. She was started with conventional antituberculous treatment and steroids. The association of potts spine with intracranial tuberculomas is extremely rare. Up to date, there are only few cases which have been reported in the literature. Intracranial tuberculomas associated with intramedullary tuberculomas only about 5 cases has been reported worldwide.
