Kajiramar J Neurosci Rural Pract. Providing comprehensive management to the patient, in this type of cases, is necessary, first, to carry out a complete cysticidal treatment and, second, to provide information to patients, relatives and the community in general about the prevention measures against Epileosia. However, this case did not include a molecular test that identified IgM antibodies for T. Neurocysticercosis Histopathological analysis confirmed the suspicion of NCC and reported reactive gliosis.

Revista de Patologia Tropical A proposal for classification of neurocysticercosis. This information is very useful for the region, since the history of NCC and the neurological manifestations compatible with the disease make it necessary to discard it. When the cysticercus dies, intense inflammation with neurocisticerccosis, periarteritis and endarteritis is usually observed, which can close the vascular lumen and impede the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid, favoring the presence of hydrocephalus and intracranial hypertension.
