abstract

  • More than two-thirds of patients with partially excised or biopsied intracranial tuberculomas exhibited persistent lesions on computed tomographic scans, even after 18 months of ATT. Therefore, the duration of ATT for patients with intracranial tuberculomas should be based on the radiological responses of the tuberculomas. Our data suggest that some patients with intracranial tuberculomas might require prolonged periods of ATT.
