Cerebral cysticercosis is unfortunately a frequent disease in Korea. Cysticercosis in the ventricular system is most frequently found in the fourth ventricle. However it is found rarely in the lateral and third ventricle. Recently, we have encountered accidently a lateral ventricular cysticercosis during a V-P Shunt operation on a 32 year old hydrocephalus patient. The diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of an encysted larvae on aspiration.
Key Words: Cysticercosis; Hydrocephalus; V-P Shunt; Encysted larvae of lateral ventricle
