Özet

Seven cases of intracranial tuberculoma diagnosed in northern Turkey over a 2-year period are presented, with emphasis on the CT and clinical findings. CT alone cannot differentiate tuberculoma from an abscess or other granulamatous processes, but it is still one of the most sensitive techniques for detecting tuberculomas. It provides information on the nature of the lesion and the number of loci.
