Review of the clinical, computerized tomography scan and/or magnetic resonance imaging findings of intracranial tuberculoma in an ethiopian teaching hospital.

Conclusion: The proper surgical technique can be established based on the preoperative CT scan. Abdominal wall reconstruction with retromuscular Prolene mesh and hernial sac provides a cheap, reliable, tension-free technique. The technique's short-term efficacy can be determined by abdominal pressure measuring through the bladder. Orv Hetil. 2020; 161(9): 347-353. PMID: 32088976 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, the diagnosis of TBM should combine clinical manifestations, CSF examination and the effect of anti-TB therapy. Differential diagnosis and trial anti-TB therapy may be of help for diagnosis. Positive CSF smear, CSF culture and biopsy of the brain, or biopsy of meninges are golden standards for the diagnosis of TBM. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important for improving the outcome. PMID: 30210618 [PubMed]

Conclusions: In the absence of hydrocephalus or vasculitis, one week of anti-tuberculosis treatment seems to be adequate for the resolution of TBM symptoms. Hydrocephalus and vasculitis delay the resolution of TBM symptoms in response to antimycobacterial treatment.
