A twenty-six year man presented with a short history of raised intracranial pressure. He had papilloedema and long tract signs in both the lower limbs. CT scan of the head revealed unilateral dilatation of the right lateral ventricle. Ventriculography showed block of right foramen of Mono. Patient was treated by right vrentriculoperitoneal shunt and antitubercular drugs. However symptoms recurred within six weeks.
