En-plaque tuberculoma is a rare manifestation of CNS tuberculosis and presents as a solitary, focal, caseous plaque-like lesion. It is difficult to differentiate en-plaque like meningeal tuberculoma from true primary or secondary meningeal neoplasia. Good response to antituberculosis treatment in a patient with tuberculosis history and typical MR findings confirm the diagnosis. We present the follow-up MR imaging findings of a case in which an enplaque tuberculoma on tentorium was diagnosed during pregnancy in a patient with a history of tuberculosis. To the best of our knowledge, enplaque tuberculomas of tentorium during pregnancy have not been reported before.
