Abstract

Paradoxical tuberculous reaction is defined as documented worsening of pre-existing tuberculous lesions or the development of new lesions during appropriate anti-tuberculous treatment (ATT) after an initial response to treatment and that is temporally related to recovery of the immune system. We treated a case of such a paradoxical reaction in an 11 years old girl who was diagnosed a case of Takayasu Arteritis with renal TB and was being treated with ATT. On follow up after 6 weeks, she developed multiple intracranial tuberculomas and hydrocephalus. She improved after additional treatment with corticosteroids.
