TUBERCULOUS MENINGITIS (CLINICAL OBSERVATION AND EVALUATION: THWAITES INDEX, LANCET CONSENSUS)

This article reviews the case of a 16-year-old adolescent patient with tuberculous meningitis (TМ), who was admitted to the Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Pulmonology and Tuberculosis (RSPCPT) for 425 days. The article aims to discuss the degree of likelihood and severity of NV in the same patient using diagnostic scales (Thwaites diagnostic index, 2002, Lancet Consensus System, 2010). The result on using of the diagnostic indexes shows high likelihood of TM in the patient. Clinical data also suggests the high severity of TМ. The study highlights the need for use and development of more modern diagnostic methods and scales for the patients with suspected TМ.
