NEUROCYSTICERCOSIS PRESENTING WITH PAROXYSMAL SENSORY DISTURBANCE

ABSTRACT

Author reports the case of a 28 years-old woman presenting episodes of paresthesia of the right arm with duration of approximately 4 days which remitted spontaneously, followed after two years by episodes of right hemiparesthesia. Brain MRI followed by brain stereotactic biopsy established the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis. Since electroencephalography showed no spike-wave abnormalities it was difficult to establish if symptoms were secondary to parietal lesion itself or were focal sensory seizures. After treatment with albendazole, methylprednisolone and sodium valproate the patient had a good recovery.

Keywords: neurocysticercosis, magnetic resonance imaging, brain stereotactic biopsy
