Isolated “one and a half syndrome” with brainstem tuberculoma
A seldom reported causal association of two rare entities, an isolated brainstem tuberculoma and an isolated One and a half syndrome in a 12 year old girl is presented. MRI showed an isolated inflammatory granuloma in the brainstem which on empirical treatment with anti tubercular drugs resulted in complete restoration of ocular motility, along with resolution of the lesion on follow up MRI at 6 months. The diagnosis and management are discussed.
