Hematogenous spread from tuberculous lesions of other parts of the body represent the origin of intracranial tuberculomas. In most series of the literature, the cerebellum has about two thirds and the cerebral hemispheres about one third of the intracranial tuberculomas. It may occurs as a single lesion, but multiple intracranial tuberculomas varies from 10% to 33% of the cases due to the hematogenous spread. Calcium deposits are rare, occurring in about 6% of cases. Ramamurthi and Varadarajan described the two types of the intracranial tuberculoma; 1. Superficial and vascular type, produces early focal signs of increased intracranial pressure. 2. deep and avascular type, accompanied by signs of increased intracranial pressure. We have been experienced in one case of symmetrical and bilateral cerebellar tuberculomas probably originated from the pulmonary lesion.
