Abstract

In a developing country like India, sophisticated electronic and computerized equipment for ICP monitoring imported from abroad involves difficulties in procurement, maintenance, servicing, etc. Hence, an attempt was made by us, successfully, to develop such instrumentation indigenously (1,2). The method has been applied particularly to the study of ICP profile in tuberculous meningitis and encephalopathy revealing some interesting findings relevant to this disease as also a special feature of brainstem lesions.
