Abstract

A 30-year-old man was admitted in PGIMER with the complaints of fever, altered sensorium and seizures. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed bilateral symmetrical temporal and frontal hyperintensities, which were highly suggestive of herpes simplex encephalitis. However, brain autopsy revealed it to be tuberculous meningo-encephalitis.
