Abstract

Background: Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is a fairly common, debilitating disease and is often complicated by arteritis resulting in brain infarction. Few treatment regimes specifically address this condition. Hypervolemia- hypertension-hemodilution (HHH) regime is known to be effective for treatment of vasospasm complicating subarachnoid hemorrhage. We studied the efficacy of HHH regime in patients with TBM with arteritis using a prospective, randomized study design. Patients and Methods: Patients diagnosed to have TB meningitis by clinical, CSF, and imaging findings were evaluated for arteritis, which was recognized by presence of focal neurologic deficits with or without corresponding focal hypodensities on brain CT scan. Patients with deficits of
