The issue, though that does not solve the problem, seems to be related
to the way Mathematica parses the "i=a" part.
In[1]:= ToExpression["\\sum_{i}^b x_i", TeXForm]
Out[1]= Sum[Subscript[x, i], {i, 1, b}]
In[2]:= ToExpression["\\sum_{i=1}^b x_i", TeXForm]
During evaluation of In[2]:= ToExpression::esntx:Could not parse \
\sum_{i=1}^b x_i as Mathematica input.
Out[2]= $Failed
In[3]:= ToExpression["\\sum_{a}^b x_i", TeXForm]
Out[3]= b*Subscript[x, i]
In[4]:= ToExpression[ToString[\sum _ {n = 1}^m n^2], TeXForm]
During evaluation of In[4]:= ToExpression::esntx:Could not parse \sum \
_{n=1}^m n^2 as Mathematica input.
Out[4]= $Failed
In[5]:= ToExpression[
ToString[\frac {(x + y)^2} {\sqrt {x y}}], TeXForm]
Out[5]= (x + y)^2/Sqrt[xy]
