Brief Summary

      Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is the most serious form of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
      infection, causing mortality and disability in more than half of the patients. Current
      standard treatment for TBM is based on those developed to treat pulmonary tuberculosis, which
      does not take into account the differential ability of anti-tuberculosis drugs to penetrate
      the brain. With both good central nervous system penetrance and anti-tuberculosis efficacy
      that have been demonstrated in drug-resistant tuberculosis, linezolid may be a promising
      antimicrobial in TBM treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of
      linezolid in the treatment of TBM.
