The case report entitled "Spinal Cord Tuberculoma and Misleading MR Imaging"[1] is very bold and misleading. The appearance of tuberculomas in brain[2] and intrinsic cord tunerculoma[3] on magnetic resonance imaging is well documented. To best of our knowledge no article in literature suggests MR imaging characteristic of intradural extramedullary tuberculoma. At the best it can give imaging possibilities and one must consider differrentials of all intradural extra medullary lesions. However looking at the title, probably it is MR which misleads us. The article draws conclusion that the MRI resolution of spinal tuberculosis can be misleading, where as article from Jena et al[2] concludes that spinal cord tuberculoma could be demonstrated on MR and their appearance is similar to that described for tuberculomas of brain.
