Intracranial tuberculoma is a rare form of central nervous system tuberculosis. We here report on conventional and diffusion-weighted cranial MR images of a non-immunocompromised patient with multiple intracranial tuberculomas, tuberculous lymphadenitis and pulmonary tuberculosis. Conventional MR imaging revealed multiple ring-enhancing mass lesions. At follow-up MR, appearances of both edema and number and size of nodules were decreased. Diffusion-weighted MR was normal and normal ADC values were found in this case of tuberculomas.
