Adjuvant immunosuppression for paradoxical deterioration in tuberculous meningitis including one case responsive to cyclosporine. A tertiary referral hospital experience

Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) accounts for 1–4% of all tuberculosis (TB) presentations. Paradoxical deterioration in non-HIV patients is a common manifestation of anti-tuberculosis therapy, characterised by clinico-radiological deterioration. We report a case series of TBM admissions to our institution including one case with paradoxical deterioration refractory to corticosteroids who responded to adjuvant cyclosporine.
