Intracranial tuberculomas are usually secondary to a tuberculous focus elsewhere in the body, most commonly the lungs. However, the absence of extra-cranial evidence of the disease is not uncommon. Intracranial tuberculoma has been described both in the supratentorial and infratentorial compartments, but the incidence of intracranial tuberculomas has been on a decline. An en-plaque tuberculoma is an uncommon variant of a tuberculoma and few cases have been described in the literature. It resembles an en-plaque meningioma in the first instance, both radiologically and in gross appearance. The treatment options include medical therapy, surgical excision or a combination of both. Here, the authors report a case of en-plaque tuberculoma and review the literature of this uncommon entity.
