The development of intracranial tuberculoma during treatment for tuberculosis have been described previously. A decrease in steroid therapy was thought to be responsible. We report a 30-year-old woman with tuberculous meningitis who developed brainstem tuberculoma while being treated with corticosteroids and anti-tuberculous therapy.
