Pathogenesis: Three separate mechanisms may be responsible for the development of TBRM. It may result from 1.
Clinical Presentation: TBRM may manifest at any point after infection with TB meningitis.
Diagnostic imaging features of tuberculosis radiculomyelitis: Loculation and destruction of the subarachnoid space, loss of contour of the spinal cord, myelomalacia and adhesions (thickening, clumping or matting) of the nerve roots particularly in the lumbar spine are common MRI findings of TBRM. (21) TBRM on T1-weighted images display increased intensity of the CSF fluid and loss of the contour of the spinal cord, due to increased protein within the CSF.
