Axial computed tomography sections at the level of basal cisterns show hyperdense calcified nodules in the regions of basal cisterns and left Sylvian fissure obliterating the cerebro-spinal fluid spaces. Mild perilesional edema is noted in the left temporal lobe

Figure 1: Axial computed tomography sections at the level of basal cisterns show hyperdense calcified nodules in the regions of basal cisterns and left Sylvian fissure obliterating the cerebro-spinal fluid spaces. Mild perilesional edema is noted in the left temporal lobe

Mentions: A 10-year-old female child who was diagnosed with tubercular meningitis and underwent shunting for hydrocephalus came with the complaints of a mild headache. She had completed 18 months of antitubercular treatment. Plain computed tomography (CT) showed hyperdense basal cisternal and left Sylvian fissure calcifications obliterating the cerebrospinal fluid spaces [Figures 1 and 2]. The bilateral ventriculoperitoneal shunts were functioning well, and there was no ventricular dilatation.
