The patient with complaints of seizure, headache and upward gaze paralysis underwent V-P shunt under the impression of pinealoma. The diagnosis of cerebral paragonimiasis was eventually made by the aid of brain CT scan and PW skin test. The case showed a positive intradermal test with relevant histories of eating rare crayfishes and the characteristic CT findings. Plain skull X-ray showed the round calcifications around the pineal region. Brain CT demonstrated multiple round calcifications in the left fronto-occipital region and dilation of the left lateral ventricle with cortical atrophy.
