Free Content Extensive Neurocysticercosis with Diffuse Leukoencephalopathy

In Central nervous system (CNS), neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the most common parasitic infection that affects the CNS. Cysticidal drugs are used for its treatment, and they can precipitate an inflammatory response, which results in worsening of symptoms. We report 2 cases of extensive neurocysticercosis that show diffuse white matter edema that involves both cerebral hemispheres. Of the 2 patients, one showed disseminated cysticercosis that involved the tongue, scalp muscles, and skeletal muscles of the extremities.
