Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura-hemolytic uremic syndrome (TTP-HUS) is a unique multisystem syndrome. It can present with either chronic or subacute infections. Tuberculosis (TB) is a chronic infection that has been reported to present with TTP-HUS as tuberculous endocarditis in the presence of immunodeficiency and implanted medical devices in regions where TB is endemic. Tuberculomas are space occupying lesions most commonly found in the brain in immunocompromised individuals. Herein, we present a rare association of tuberculosis with endocarditis manifesting as a tuberculoma and presenting as TTP-HUS in an immunocompetent patient and resident of the United States.
