Six cases of Tuberculoma of brain are reported for their unusual presentation. Two cases had grape-like multiple arachnoid cysts in association with a tuberculoma. One case showed a tuberculous abscess in the cerebellum in association with tuberculous meningitis. One case had presented with a history of abnormal behaviour for three years with no evidence of raised intracranial pressure. Two cases with duration of more than live years are included because of chronicity.
