There are bilateral enhancing infarcts in the basal ganglia and hydrocephalus. Fig. 6. IV contrast-enhanced CT: tuberculous meningitis; hydrocephalus and well-defined low density old L deep grey matter infarct (arrow). a b Fig. 8a,b. IV contrast-enhanced CT: tuberculous meningitis; there is basal leptomeningeal enhancement, hydrocephalus and infarction of the left anterior cerebral artery territory.

6). MR is far superior to CT in accessing the extent and anatomic location of the infarcts, particularly in the brain stem. A recent infarct is a T2 hyperintense lesion which may show mass effect and have variable IV gadolinium enhancement (Fig. 7). 3a). Infarction of major vessels can occur with complete vascular territory involvement (Fig. 8) and the end result of infarction can be extensive encephalomalacia (Fig. 9). The proliferative arachnoiditis can obstruct the normal flow of CSF from the choroid plexus to the arachnoid granulations on the convexity.

It is clinically supported by chronic sputum production and the development of finger clubbing. This is relevant as symptomatic disease with confirmed radiologic bronchiectasis requires a evaluation for surgery, whilst an asymptomatic patient with dilated airways which clear and drain themselves may not. The insult and damage to the bronchi may occur during acute disease from bronchus obstruction or bronchial stenosis resulting from fibrosis, which occurs with healing of granulomatous lesions. CXR shows persistent opacification and atelectasis with dilated and cystic airways.
