Hello doctor,

I have disseminated tuberculosis with brain tuberculoma. I experienced a severe episode two months ago. I am using the AKT-4 kit. I underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan after two months. The scan reports suggested that the lesion is still there. What medication should I take? For how long can I use the AKT-4 kit? How much time will the lesion take to shrink?



Welcome to icliniq.com. From the reports attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), I can see a significant reduction in inflammation of the brain. I suggest you do some relaxation exercises regularly and go for walks to get pure oxygen. Eat healthy and home-cooked food daily.
