ABSTRACT
Cerebral cysticercosis is, unfortunately, a frequent disease in Korea. The clinical symptoms, however resembled that of space occufying lesion of the brain, are dependent on the location, number of parasite, intensity of infestation and susceptibility of the host. Palpation of the subcutaneous nodule, eosinophilia in peripheral blood, pleocytosis combined with increased protein in CSF, specific localizing signs, calcification on plain skull (4.5%) and filling defect on Conray ventriculography or pneumoventriculography, all of them are heiflful in diagnosis of cerebral cysticercosis. Medical treatment of cysticercosis is not satisfiable now. Some eneurosurgen insisted on they are able to get a good result from surgical removal to the cyst and shunt operation. We have experienced a case of cerebral cysticercosis which had invaded cerebral cortex multitudinously and the third ventricle. So we discussed this case with brief review of literature.
