Tuberculous meningoencephalitis always requires a neuroradiological investigation for detection of CSF obstruction. Computerized axial tomography and cisternography with the non-ionic water-soluble contrast medium metrizamide must be considered the methods of choice for this purpose. An example of the application of these techniques in one patient with tuberculous meningoencephalitis is reported.
