Abstract

Multifocal lesions with necrotic center and peripheral enhancement can be a diagnostic challenge. Magnetic resonance imaging with advanced sequences, such as perfusion, can be confusing, as some inflammatory lesions can show hyperperfusion, mimicking tumors. We present a case of neurotuberculosis with multifocal lesions which diagnosis was confirmed by brain biopsy.
