A histopathological review of 90 cases of tuberculous lesions of the central nervous system has been made. They comprised 59 cases of tuberculous meningitis, 19 cases of tuberculoma of the brain and 12 cases of spinal tuberculous granulomas. The histological features in the three types of lesions have been described. While tubercles were the main features in all the groups, caseation was seen most often in the tuberculoma and least in the spinal granuloma. The vascular changes were essentially inflammatory in nature in meningitis and spinal granulomas, while in the tuberculoma the changes were mainly occlusive in character.
