1) Cerebral angiography was done in SOcases of T.B.M. at various stages, either unilateral or bilateral. Depending on neurological involvement. All the cases were female between the age groups of 12 to 50 years. (2) No significant correlation was observed between the CSF findings and the cerebral arterial involvement. (3) There was definite correlation between the arterial involvement and neurological deficis, All the cases of hemiplegia had involvement of middle cerebral artery and other 10 cases of confusional state and cranial nerve palsies also had arterial involvement. (4) It was observed that the cases who had arterial involvement had poor prognosis as 9 patients expired out of 24 cases whereas only one patient expired from the cases (24) in which no arterial involvement could be demonstrated. (5) Angiography can be useful in differentiating between the space occupying lesions and arterial involvement.
