Pediatric Neurology Book Review:

Tuberculous (TB) meningitis is common in resource-poor communities but also occurs in developed countries where the diagnosis is frequently delayed because of unfamiliarity with the disease. TB meningitis develops whenever a small intracranial tuberculoma (Rich focus) ruptures causing predominantly basal meningitis. This results in hydrocephalus, cranial nerve palsies, and ischemic brain injury secondary to tuberculous vasculitis. The primary source of TB is usually the lung. Early diagnosis is difficult because patients tend to present subacutely with nonspecific symptoms such as fever, cough, vomiting, listlessness, and failure to thrive. Lumbar puncture typically shows clear and colorless CSF with a low, predominantly lymphocytic, leukocytosis and raised protein and low glucose levels. Decision to treat is mostly clinical because of difficulty in demonstrating TB bacilli on routine smear and time needed for culture. A positive TB contact, Mantoux skin test, chest radiograph, CT/MRI brain scan, PCR for tuberculosis on CSF, and demonstration of TB bacilli from extraneural sources are invaluable in supporting a diagnosis of TB meningitis. Current World Health Organization guidelines recommend treatment with a four-drug regimen for 2 months, followed by a two-drug regimen for 10 months, the total duration of treatment being 12 months. Corticosteroids reduce mortality without changing neurological morbidity. Outcome relates closely to age and stage of disease.

Cytokines in Tuberculous Meningitis Book Review:

Tuberculous meningitis is one of the serious diseases that affects all ages in developing countries endemic with tuberculosis. Host immunity plays a pivotal role in fighting the disease and determining its outcome. Cytokines are one of the host immunity tools to achieve the defense mission against the invading tuberculous bacilli. Cytokines are detected in various concentrations during the progress of the disease. Granuloma formation in the brain is also one of the characteristics of tuberculous meningitis that helps in surrounding the tuberculous bacilli to prevent its spread, but on the other hand may have unfavorable consequences. This book describes a study on tuberculous meningitis cases before treatment and after one and six months of treatment. The study demonstrates different types of cytokines during the diseases stages on admission to hospital and during treatment and follow up visits. It also describes the natural history of granuloma formation during various stages of the disease. Finally, the study tried to find the correlation between different types of cytokines and tuberculous granuloma development as well as the disease outcome.

Tuberculosis of the Central Nervous System Book Review:

Written and edited by leading international authorities in the field, this book provides an in-depth review of knowledge of tuberculosis of the central nervous system, with emphasis on clinical, diagnostics, and therapeutic features. Tuberculosis, one of the most lethal diseases in human history, still poses a serious threat in the world together with economic and social problems, although a great progress in the fight against this infectious disease in the last century. It covers the full range of tuberculosis of central nervous system and the chapters are organized into six sections: (1) the cranial; (2) the spinal; and (3) the peripheral portions of the nervous system; followed by (4) a section on the laboratory studies in tuberculosis; (5) a section on medical and surgical therapy; and (6) further insights into tuberculosis. This comprehensive reference book will be an ideal source for neurosurgeons, neurologists and specialists upon infectious diseases seeking both basic and more sophisticated information and surgical procedures relating to the complications associated with tuberculosis involving the spine, brain and peripheral nerves.
