Tuberculoma of medulla oblongata is a rare manifestation of central nervous system tuberculosis (CNS TB), which may manifest as intractable singultus as the initial symptom. It is almost impossible to obtain definite diagnosis through biopsy consider its location. Immediate thorough diagnostic workup is needed, and empirical treatment should be started. We report a case of medulla oblongata tuberculoma in an HIV-negative 38-year-old man with intractable singultus as one of the early symptoms. He was treated empirically with anti-tuberculosis therapy and his symptoms subsided within 2 weeks.
