ABSTRACT
Although tuberculomas of the brain and the spinal cord were recorded in many case reports, that of the peripheral nerve was extremely rare and only two cases were reported in the literature(in India). These reported tuberculomas were found in the ulnar nerve, that were treated by operative removal and postoperative antituberculous chemotherapy. We have recently experienced a case of tuberculoma of the ulnar nerve that was operatively removed to be confirmed by microscopic examination. We report this case with brief review of the articles.
