Abstract

Two cases of clinically diagnosed tubercular meningitis, from the C.S.F of which Mycobacteria were cultured are reported. These isolates could be stained only by the modified method and not by the standard Ziehl-Neelsen technique. These chromophobic mycobactena were identified as belonging to Avium-Intracellulare complex.
