In an analysis of 757 autopsies performed at the Cook County Hospital from 1917 to 1927 inclusive, on patients who had died of tuberculosis, 20 instances of the occurrence of tuberculoma of the brain were discovered. It is the purpose of this paper to present briefly certain clinical and pathologic data which have been drawn from the records of these cases. In some instances desired information has not been available. This is due in part to the fact that the condition was not usually suspected during the patients' life time, only two cases having been diagnosed ante mortem.
