Tuberculous (TB) meningitis is common in resource-poor communities but also occurs in developed countries where the diagnosis is frequently delayed because of unfamiliarity with the disease. TB meningitis develops whenever a small intracranial tuberculoma (Rich focus) ruptures causing predominantly basal meningitis. This results in hydrocephalus, cranial nerve palsies, and ischemic brain injury secondary to tuberculous vasculitis. The primary source of TB is usually the lung. Early diagnosis is difficult because patients tend to present subacutely with nonspecific symptoms such as

Granuloma formation in the brain is also one of the characteristics of tuberculous meningitis that helps in surrounding
