Abstract

Syringomyelia can occur as a complication of tuberculous meningitis despite of appropriate chemotherapy and almost it is founded with motor and sensory disturbances. We have experienced a case of an extensive syringomyelia & syringobulbia in tuberculous meningitis who complained only mild numbness & diplopia without specific motor disturbance. So we think that we should not overlook even mild symptoms and have to evaluate the syringomyelia timely by radiographic study.
