Abstract

A 34-year-old woman developed symptomatic arachnoiditis ossificans and an arachnoid cyst as a consequence of tuberculous meningitis adequately treated 20 years before. Surgical decompression of the cyst stopped the progression of her spastic paraparesis. Pathologic examination confirmed the presence of ossification of the arachnoid.
