GUERREIRO, Marilisa M.; FACURE, Nubor O.  and  GUERREIRO, Carlos A. M.. Cranial computerized tomography aspects of neurocysticercosis in infancy. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1989, vol.47, n.2, pp.153-158. ISSN 0004-282X.

The authors present the analysis of 27 computed tomography scans (CT) of 18 children which were divided in three groups according to clinical and tomographic criteria. Group 1 was characterized mainly by epilepsy and calcifications. Group 2 was characterized by intracranial hypertension and several tomographic aspects: edema, cysts and nodules were seen in three patients; hydrocephaly and calcifications were seen in two patients and CT was normal in one patient. Group 3 had patients with epilepsy or headache and variable tomographic patterns. The results are discussed based on the available literature.
