Central nervous system tuberculosis usually presents as tuberculous meningitis, intracranial tuberculoma, tuberculous brain abscess, or tuberculous mass. Tuberculoma originates as a conglomerate of microgranulomata in an area of tuberculous cerebritis that joins to form a non-caseating tuberculoma. We report a patient with central nervous system tuberculosis that showed evolution of caseating granuloma from cerebritis in the corpus callosum.
