Abstract

Purpose. To present and describe the rare case of neurotuberculosis. Materials and methods. Literature review and a case report from personal clinical experience are presented. The workup included magnetic resonance imaging by 1.5 T scanner, laboratory data, microbiological, X-ray and postmortem autopsy studies. Results. The magnetic resonance imaging capabilities in the differential diagnosis for this clinical case of the patient with tuberculosis and AIDS are presented. The final diagnosis was verified by postmortem histological study. Conclusion. Tuberculosis is an infectious disease with a wide variety of presentations. Magnetic resonance imaging allows to clarify the type of brain lesions and sometimes to identify the exact etiology of the process, to assess the dynamics of the process and to modify the treatment.
