Presumed diagnosis was tuberculous meningitis, and she was treated with tuberculostatic

There are reports of tuberculostatic
activity of Lawsonia inermis that implicate lawsone (2-hydroxynaphthoquinone) which is known to be the major constituent of this herb (Sharma 1995, Tripathi 1978).
Multiple intracranial tuberculomas with atypical response to tuberculostatic
chemotherapy: literature review and a case report.
In addition to a standard tuberculostatic
5-drug regimen including intravenous streptomycin, empiric anti-amoebic treatment based on data retrieved from the few case reports of successful treatment of systemic Acanthamoeba infections (3-5) was initiated.
Subsequent cultures were positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and all tuberculostatic
drugs tested showed high sensitivity.
