Unusual forms of spinal tuberculosis
Objective: The incidence of tuberculosis (TB) is increasing in both developing and developed worlds, and children, in particular, represent a high-risk group for acquiring the disease. TB of the central nervous system is ...
MRI to demonstrate diagnostic features and complications of TBM not seen with CT
Background: Computed tomography (CT) findings in children with tuberculous meningitis (TBM) often do not explain the clinical presentation and may even be normal. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to ...
CT features of tuberculous intracranial abscesses in children
Background: Intracranial tuberculous (TB) abscesses still cause a diagnostic dilemma on both CT and MRI as they may mimic neoplasms. Recognition of TB abscesses may prompt further imaging and appropriate trial of therapy, ...
Distribution of brain infarction in children with tuberculous meningitis and correlation with outcome score at 6 months
Background: Prognostic indicators for tuberculous meningitis (TBM) offer realistic expectations for parents of affected children. Infarctions affecting the basal ganglia are associated with a poor outcome. Objective: To ...
The effects of misinterpretation of an artefact on multidetector row CT scans in children
Background: Artefacts reflect problems with radiographic technique rather than true pathology. These may be misinterpreted as pathology with serious consequences. An artefact caused such problems in one paediatric imaging ...
Magnetic resonance imaging of miliary tuberculosis of the central nervous system in children with tuberculous meningitis
Background: Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is closely associated with miliary tuberculosis and a pathogenetic relationship is suspected, although it has been proposed that the two processes are unrelated. Objective: To ...
