It has been approximately five decades since Dastur et al., published their seminal work on pathology of tuberculous meningitis (TBM). Though most of their findings find relevance in today's era, there is an important difference; these findings can now be replicated during life using modern day technology. In this article, we review the seminal words of Professor Dastur and colleagues, analyse their findings, interpret how these revolutionized our understanding of TBM and highlight their relevance in today's era. We also discuss challenges in the management of TBM, which we continue to face today and the various options required to overcome these challenges.
