Intramedullary spinal tuberculomas, though rare are an important cause of compressive myelopathy in developing countries. They are usually seen to occur in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and may also occur in patients who are already on antitubercular treatment for central nervous system tuberculosis. Advancements in the imaging modalities have facilitated an early detection with prompt institution of early medical management and/or surgical intervention when deemed necessary. We report interesting three cases of intramedullary spinal tuberculomas who improved with medical management.
