Abstract

Neuroendoscopic Treatment of Intracranial Tuberculoma: Case Report

Intracranial tuberculoma rarely are seen in industrialized countries and represent only a small part of all intracranial space-occupying lesions. In most cases, conservative therapy provides good results. When treatment is not effective or lesion enlarged, surgery is recommended. Role of surgery in patients with intracranial tuberculomas is not yet established. This report describes a case of symptomatic intracranial tuberculoma and minimally invasive surgical option of treatment with ventricular neuroendoscopic aspiration.
