Spinal cord tuberculoma is a rare entity with cerebral to cord ratio 42:1, and is induced by haematogenous dissemination or through CSF infection. It is a treatable entity so holds importance in diagnosis. We present a caseof a 21 year old male presented with weakness, numbness and paresthesias in bilateral upper limbs with characteristic MR imaging findings of tuberculoma in the cord in healing calcified granulomatous stage.
