Diagnóstico clínico-radiológico de neurocisticercosis: a propósito de un caso

Histopathological analysis confirmed the suspicion of NCC and reported reactive gliosis. A brain CT showed a right frontal subcortical cyst and bilateral frontoparietal calcified nodules.

Epilepsia del lobulo temporal y neurocisticercosis activa: Pharmacological management was initiated with albendazole at an oral dose of neurocsiticercosis every 24 hours, dexamethasone 8mg IV every 8 hours, paracetamol at an oral dose of 1g every 8 hours and omeprazole at an oral dose of 20mg every 24 hours. Two cases of adult patients with neuropsychiatric manifestations of one year evolution, refractory to antipsychotic drug treatment, and who subsequently appear late onset partial-secondarily generalized seizures.

Se identifica la presencia de cisticercosis activa en el lobulo temporal en un paciente, y en la insula, en el otro. When the cysticercus dies, intense inflammation with exudate, periarteritis and endarteritis is usually observed, which can close the vascular lumen and impede the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid, favoring the presence of hydrocephalus and intracranial hypertension. Cost of neurocysticercosis patients treated in two referral hospitals in Mexico City, Mexico.


The neurology service requested a computed tomography CT that revealed a dilation of the supratentorial ventricular system and a right frontal subcortical cystic lesion that created a mass effect with midline shift. A better clinical control after albendazol treatment and subsequently anticonvulsant therapy only remained to evaluate pertinence of pharmacological withdrawal criteria.

As a result of this treatment, the patient began to improve her clinical and tomographic condition. A cranial computerized axial tomography was taken, which together with her clinical history led to suspicion of neurocysticercosis. Update on Cysticercosis Epileptogenesis: Users should refer to the original published version of the csso for the full abstract.

Epilepsy is the most frequent clinical expression, but presentation can vary greatly.

She was admitted to the neurosurgery department for completion of the study, which confirmed the diagnosis of suspicion. As seen in Figure 3, humans develop teniosis when cysticerci are ingested.

A treatment with dexamethasone and albendazole began. This disease causes the highest helminthic-related morbidity and mortality rates due to its deleterious effects on the central nervous system.

Estudio de seroprevalencia Neurocysticercosis of the frontal lobe was suspected as the main diagnosis considering the clinical manifestations, anamnesis and local epidemiology. Iraola Ferrer, Marcos D. After a year, a simple and contrastive skull CT scan was performed on the patient. Electronic Journal of Biomedicine. Making a timely diagnosis along the process medical history, imaging and laboratory tests is important when the history, signs and symptoms are compatible with NCC.

Contact with sick individuals is an important way of contagion, being the main risk factor for TCC infection.


The objective of this article is to promote knowledge about the heterogeneous manifestations of neuroinfection by T. Solium due to local limitations. Buen control clinico posterior al tratamiento con albendazol, pero se mantiene el mismo tratamiento anticonvulsionante para considerar la pertinencia de su retirada farmacologica.
