Diagnostic Lab Data: Head CT scan 7/21/21: Scattered hypodense regions throughout both cerebral hemispheres but most pronounced in the left frontal lobe, nonspecific though diagnostic considerations including ischemia and/or demyelination. Further evaluation with MRI recommended. Brain and spine MRI 7/21/21: Innumerable nodular enhancing lesions throughout bilateral cerebral and cerebellar hemispheres with overlying leptomeningeal enhancement, along with two enhancing nodules within the pons as described. Overall appearance is most concerning for infection, with differential including atypical causes such as tuberculosis or parasitic (such as neurocysticercosis or amoebic). Metastatic disease or neurosarcoidosis could also have this appearance but are felt to be less likely. Two small nodular enhancing foci within the lower thoracic spinal cord as described. CT chest/abd/pelvis 7/21/21: 1. Innumerable tiny nodules diffusely throughout both lungs, with also patchy opacities in the left upper lobe and lingula, and in the dependent lung bases. Findings are suspicious for infection, including atypical etiologies such as tuberculosis. 2. Wedge-shaped area of hypoenhancement within the left kidney, and a smaller area in the left upper pole. Findings may represent infection or less likely infarction. 3. Mild splenomegaly. COVID antibody 7/21/21: negative CSF 7/21/21: WBC 31 (Lymph 60%, PMN 29%), RBC 7, gluc 32, prot 113
CDC 'Split Type':

Write-up: Prior to vaccine with a few weeks of weight loss, fatigue, and mild cough. Two days after vaccination with headache, self resolved. Then around 7/17 she developed tactile fevers, increasing fatigue, and headache. On 7/20 PM she had acute onset of altered mental status- she was screaming and disoriented. She was taken to the Hospital emergency department on 7/21 AM. Work up initially concerning for ADEM, although subsequent imaging consistent with miliary TB with CNS disease (tuberculomas). Patient was exposed to grandmother with MDR pulmonary TB in 2018. Patient was prescribed treatment for LTBI (QuantGold pos but negative CXR) but unclear if she took it. Currently started on therapy for MDR TB and remains hospitalized.
