Abstract

Cysticercosis is a common parasitosis of developing countries which is now being increasingly recognized in areas of the United States with large immigrant populations and tourists from endemic areas. The symptoms of central nervous system involvement are often nondiagnostic, since they mimic other conditions associated with space-occupying lesions. Correct diagnosis will therefore depend on the choice and interpretation of ancillary procedures. We have found magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to be a particularly useful modality for the diagnosis of this parasitic infection.
