This brought about the admission of the patient into the hospital. Neurocisticegcosis elaboration based on the data obtained in the study. Estudio de seroprevalencia This information is very useful for the region, since the history of NCC and the neurological manifestations compatible with the disease make it necessary to discard it.

Symptoms and signs of NCC depend on localization, number, dimensions, cysticercus stage vesicular, colloidal, granular-nodular and calcified nodulegenotype and immune status of the host. As a result of this treatment, the patient began to improve her clinical and tomographic condition. Neurocysticercosis is an emergent pathology in developed neurocisticercosie, due to the increase of immigration from endemic areas, mainly from Latin America.

J Neurosci Rural Pract. Our aim with this paper is to use clinical and radiological criteria to orientate diagnosis neurocisyicercosis there is suspicion of neurocysticercosis, presenting a clinical case as an example.

neurocisticervosis Making a timely diagnosis along the process medical history, imaging and laboratory tests is important when the history, signs and symptoms are compatible with NCC.

A treatment with praziquantel and prednisone was given to the patient without any clinical and tomographic improvement on the patient. In the same way, intervention for promotion and prevention is highlighted as relevant.

It is important to know and educate the community about the life cycle of parasites, epidemiology, prevention measures and clinical manifestations of neurocysticercosis in order to make a timely diagnosis and administer an effective treatment.

This case shows strength in diagnosis, epidemiology and clinical foundation.
