Clinical trials of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor have demonstrated significant efficacy in those patients with Crohn's disease that is not responsive to other anti- inflammatory drug. Infliximab is a human-murine chimeric monoclonal antibody with a high binding affinity and specificity for TNF-α. Yet therapy with infliximab is associated with an increased risk of opportunistic infection, and especially tuberculosis. Here we reported on a case of tuberculous meningitis in 26-year-old man, and he was treated with infliximab for uncontrolled and fistulous Crohn's disease. We also include a review of the literature.
