La neurocisticercosis NCC es causada por la ingesta de huevos de la tenia del cerdo Taenia solium provenientes de un individuo con teniosis complejo teniasis-cisticercosis. Clinical and radiological diagnosis of neurocysticercosis: A better clinical control after albendazol treatment and subsequently anticonvulsant therapy only remained to evaluate pertinence of pharmacological withdrawal criteria.


It is important to know and educate the community about the life cycle of parasites, epidemiology, prevention measures and clinical manifestations of neurocysticercosis in order to make a timely diagnosis and administer an effective treatment.

As seen in Figure 3, humans develop teniosis when cysticerci are ingested. La neurocisticercosis activa puede ser causa de trastornos neuropsiquiatricos adquiridos y de epilepsia del lobulo temporal de inicio tardio cuando su topografia se encuentra en el circuito mesolimbico.

Several anatomoclinical syndromes of neurocysticercosis have been described. J Neurosci Rural Pract. The prevalence of NCC is higher in rural areas, where people work neurocisticetcosis pigs and sanitary conditions are neurocisticfrcosis deficient.


A craniotomy was performed to remove the cyst and conduct vlinico histopathological study, while a ventriculoperitoneal shunt was arranged to reduce intracranial pressure Figure 2. As a result of this treatment, the patient began to improve her clinical and tomographic condition. The patient evolved satisfactorily, did not present any type of sequelae and was discharged.

A high degree of suspicion is necessary in order to be able to diagnose this disease. Neurocitsicercosis 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.

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.

Neurocishicercosis, there are 50 million people affected by NCC around the world, which makes it an endemic disease in Colombia and other Latin American countries.

Existen pocas evidencias notificadas de casos de epilepsia del lobulo temporal asociadas a cisticercosis activa en su fase quistica. Anales Sis San Navarra [online].

The objective of this article is to promote knowledge about the heterogeneous manifestations of neuroinfection by T. El diagnostico etiologico oportuno y el tratamiento apropiado permiten el control adecuado de su sintomatologia y, potencialmente, su curacion definitiva.
