Tuberculomas in the Cavernous Sinus, Temporal Lobe and Basal Subarachnoid Spaces
Keywords:Tuberculoma, Cavernous sinus, Basal subarachnoid spaces, Temporal lobe
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).
