Abstract

Tuberculoma is not an uncommon lesion in intracranial space specially in developing world but tuberculoma

in the cavernous sinus is very rare, and only less than ten cases have been reported in the literature, till

today. Preoperative neuro-radiological features of such lesions may mimic neoplastic lesions of skull base

and brain and post operative histopathological study brings the ultimate diagnosis. Here we report a rare

case of cavernous sinus tuberculoma where tuberculomas were also in temporal lobe and Basal

subarachnoid spaces (Right cavernous sinus, left temporal lobe, right sylvian fissure, basal cistern,

interpeduncular cistern and prepontine cistern).
