RESÚMEN

Se presentan 159 casos de procesos expansivos de los cuales se revisan 111 catalogados como no neoplásicos vistos durante los años 1984-1988 en el HGBCH, llamando la atención fundamentalmente sobre 3 aspectos: (1) la importancia de establecer organicidad en la epilepsia parcial y la epilepsia tardía; (2) la incidencia aada vez mayor de procesos infecciosos e inflamatorios intracraneanos en países en desarrollo; (3) la existencia de dos procesos parasitarios que deben encontrarse en el diagnóstico diferencial de procesos expansivos no tumorales: amebiasis de vida libre, y toxoplasmosis (especialmente en pacientes con SIDA).


SUMMARY

Presentation of clinical-tomographic correlation in 111 cases of non tumoral intracranial expansive processes seen between 1984-1988 in the Hospital Cayetano Heredia (Lima, Peru). Emphasis is given fundamentally to: (1) the importance of stablishing the or-ganicity of partial and late epilepsy; (2) the high incidence rate of inflammatory infectious processes with CNS compromise in underdeveloping countries; (3) the necessity of making public the importance of two parisitic diseases in the differential diagnosis of non tumoral intracranial expansive processes: free living amebiasis, and toxoplasmosis (especially in association with AIDS).
