Abstract

The authors describe the case of a child affected by neurocysticercosis, an infestation of the CNS due to larvae of Taenia solium, a rare pathology in our region. EEG and NMR studies confirmed multiple localizations involving meningeal, parenchymal and ventricular regions. The child suffered from generalized epilepsy with focal EEG aspects. Despite therapy, progressive clinical complication lead to state of coma and death.
