ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 10-year-old girl with meningitis and later developed optic neuritis. The girl was diagnosed with tuberculosis meningitis after a positive interferon-γ test. The girl underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain which reveals leptomeningeal enhancement and she was treated with chemotherapy including high dose methotrexate.
