Full text available as:
Thirty cases of posterior fossa cystic arachnoiditis were studied over a period of three
years. Out of these, nine cases showed evidence of tuberculous pathology. It is these nine cases, where
neurotuberculosis presented in form of a pseudocyst, which form the basis of this presentation. Their
clinical profile and clinico-radio-pathological correlation is being presented.
