Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A case of isolated supratentorial tuberculoma is described. The patient had a left facial palsy, left hemiplegia, and left proprioceptive and stereognostic deficits with negative studies until the lesion was delineated with computerized axial tomography (EMI scan). The characteristic EMI scan is helpful in delineating the nature and precise location of the lesion prior to surgery.
