[Temporal lobe epilepsy and active neurocysticercosis: two representative case reports].

A craniotomy was performed to remove the cyst and conduct a histopathological study, while a ventriculoperitoneal shunt was arranged to reduce intracranial pressure Figure 2. It should be noted that both diseases could occur simultaneously in the same individual. Repeated hydrocephalus in recurrent intraventricular neurocysticercosis: OMS; neurocisticercosix Dec 17]. Depending on the development stage of T. Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep.

Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. Neurocysticercosis is an emergent pathology in developed countries, due to the increase of immigration from endemic areas, mainly from Latin America. The neurology service requested a computed tomography CT that revealed a dilation of the supratentorial ventricular system and a right frontal subcortical cystic lesion neurocistkcercosis created a mass effect with midline shift.

[Temporal lobe epilepsy and active neurocysticercosis: two representative case reports].

This disease causes the highest helminthic-related morbidity and cllnico rates due to its deleterious effects on the central nervous system. We present the case of a 43 year old woman of Bolivian origin, who came to accidents and emergencies after suffering a generalized convulsive crisis, witnessed by relatives of the patient. She received treatment with albendazol and corticoids, with a good evolution. Pharmacological management was initiated with albendazole at an oral dose of mg every 24 hours, dexamethasone 8mg IV every 8 clinifo, paracetamol at an oral dose of 1g every 8 hours and omeprazole at an oral dose of 20mg every 24 hours.


This case shows strength in diagnosis, epidemiology and clinical foundation.

Iraola Ferrer, Marcos D. La neurocisticercosis NCC es causada por la ingesta de huevos de la tenia del cerdo Clincio solium provenientes de un individuo con teniosis complejo teniasis-cisticercosis. Cysticercosis active presence in the temporal lobe in one patient, and the insula in the other, is identified.

Epilepsia del neurocistiercosis temporal y neurocisticercosis activa: Neurocysticercosis is the most frequent parasitism in the central nervous system. In the same way, intervention for promotion and prevention is highlighted as relevant.

Clinical and radiological diagnosis of neurocysticercosis: Reinfection was suspected due to a previous history of NCC a significant risk factorthe presence of calcified nodules in the imaging and regional epidemiology. Suggested lesions of parenchymal neurocysticercosis appeared. The reason for consultation was the impossibility of walking by himself.

A rare case of recurrence of primary spinal neurocysticercosis mimicking an arachnoid cyst. The patient presented with a frontal syndrome characterized by left hemiparesis, disobedience of orders, dromomania, cognitive impairment, space-time disorientation and verbal-motor automatism, which are related to cysticercosis cysts in the right frontal lobe.

A brain CT showed a right frontal subcortical cyst and bilateral frontoparietal calcified nodules. A treatment with dexamethasone and albendazole began. Existen pocas evidencias notificadas de casos de epilepsia del lobulo temporal asociadas a cisticercosis activa en su fase quistica. Neurocysticercosis of the frontal lobe was suspected as the main diagnosis considering the clinical manifestations, anamnesis and local epidemiology.

When animals are slaughtered, if there are deficiencies in sanitary control, pork meat is commercialized and humans end up consuming cysticerci and developing teniosis. Histopathological analysis confirmed the suspicion of NCC and reported reactive gliosis. This brought about the admission of the patient into the hospital.
