TB meningitis: What is the question. Tb meningitis can result in numerous neurologic sequellae, some of which may resolve with time, and some which may be permanent. Glad she is getting slowly better and hope it keeps up. It is wonderful that she has a friend both concerned and interested in medicine. Keep it up and good luck.
