PEREZ, Carlos E; CALDERON, Carlos M  and  BOHORQUEZ, Leonardo. Intramedullary tuberculoma in an immunocompetent patient. Infect. [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp.124-128. ISSN 0123-9392.

We present the case of a 26 year old male patient, with a subacute compromise of muscle strength in his lower limbs and urinary retention. The presence of an intramedullary tuberculoma was documented. The patient received corticosteroids and anti-tuberculous therapy, with a total resolution of the symptoms. A short a literature review is also included.

Keywords : Tuberculosis; intramedullary tuberculoma; central nervous system; magnetic resonance imaging.
