ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Cysticercosis

History: A 35 year-old Hispanic female with no significant past medical history presented with new onset of seizures.

Findings: CT and MR evaluation of the brain demonstrated multiple well-defined cystic lesions in the brain parenchyma and subarachnoid spaces. All lesions were approximately 1cm in size and several appeared to have a small internal nodule. Only one of the lesions (an intra-axial cyst in the frontal lobe) demonstrated any surrounding edema.

Ddx: Septic Emboli Metastatic Disease Infection Multifocal GBM

Dxhow: Radiologically confirmed.

Exam: Hemodynamically stable. No focal neurological abnormalities. CBC, Chem7, LFTs, serum etOH and drug screen negative.

No MeSH data available.


Axial CT demonstrates a well defined extra-axial cystic lesion along the right temporal lobe with no surrounding edema. A small internal nodular density can be appreciated.
