The study reveals asymmetrical enlargement with avid enhancement of the choroid plexus at the atrium of the right lateral ventricle .
Ventricular size is normal. No obvious leptomeningeal enhancement is noted.
Given the history and presentation, these findings are consistent with the diagnosis of choroid plexitis.
The CSF examination revealed a biochemical picture compatible with tubercular meningitis.
