Abstract

100 consecutive patients of T.B. meningitis have been analysed. 82 % of these cases developed ocular complications. 40 % had d diminished visual acuity, 22 % papilloedema, 18 % pale disc, 25 % ocular paresis and 10 % choroidal tubercles. Neuro-ophthalmic complications, such as vasculitis, were proved by angiography in 20 % cases; 22 % had evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus shown by ventriculogram/C.T. and 12% had evidence of Tuberculoma.
