Abstract

Abstract: Tuberculosis continues to be an important public health problem in developing countries. The incidence of tuberculosis in pregnancy ranges between 1% and 2%, with only few case reports of cerebral tuberculoma during pregnancy. We present a case of a 28-year-old woman who presented with postpartum headache as a manifestation of cerebral tuberculoma and discuss the importance of clinical findings.
