The central nervous system involvement of Schistosomiasis is rarely reported in the literatures. The authors report a case of cerebellar Schistosomiasis. A 40-year-old man presented to our hospital with a one year history of dizziness and gait disturbance. The computerized tomography and MRI of the brain and spinal cord showed tumoral form of mass on cerebellar vermis and roof of the fourth ventricle. The histological study of the partially excised cerebellar mass demonstrated granulomatous reaction around Schistosoma mansoni eggs. After operation, praziquantel was used for 7 days(60 mg/kg/day) drally. This is the first case report of central nervous system Schistosomiasis in Korea.
Key Words: Cerebellum; Schistosoma mansoni; Granulomatous reaction; Praziquantel
