Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe two cases of neurocysticercosis, the first with a spinal extramedullary form, the second with hydrocephalus secondary to basal cistern and convexity arachnoiditis. Praziquantel was given without evident benefit; this therapeutic response is discussed in relation to the clinical and radiological findings. The Italian literature is reviewed.
