Abstract
Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is common infectious disease. Early diagnosis and timely treatment are critical for the cure of the disease. Thwaites standard is widely accepted but not the golden standard. Here, we analyzed 42 cases of TBM patients in local hospital and combined with literature review to provide more information in TBM management.
