COELI, Gustavo Nunes Medina et al. Nodular calcified neurocysticercosis with signs of reactivation. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp. 291-293. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000500012.
Neurocysticercosis is a disease characterized by the involvement of the central nervous system by the intermediate larval stage of the parasite Taenia solium. The larva degeneration process and the inflammatory reaction of the body cause clinical symptoms. The authors report a case of clinical and radiological reactivation of nodular calcified neurocysticercosis in a patient who was asymptomatic for more than 20 years. Antiparasitic treatment showed a good response.
