hard to say: Tuberculous meningitis is an uncommon expression of the infection, and in some cases represents rupture or a pre-existing tuberculoma in the central nervous system. If she is not in coma, or having dilated pupils, she is not in imminent danger, and some of her problems could reverse with meds and supportive care. Pt, ot, and speech therapies offer great rehab potential.
