Chronic granulomatous CNS infections may be caused by tuberculosis, fungi and rarely by free-living amoeba, especially in immunocompromised individuals. We report a rare, fatal case of granulomatous amoebic encephalitis in an immunocompetent patient mimicking CNS tuberculosis, and review the imageological features and diagnostic tests.
