B. Caseating granulomas
The answer is b. ( Victor, p 759.) Rupture of a large caseating granuloma into the ventricles or the subarachnoid space may produce an abrupt and often lethal deterioration. If the mass becomes large enough before it ruptures, it may in all respects imitate a brain tumor. Such lesions may respond to antituberculous medications even when they are quite large, and the patient may be spared surgical intervention.
