Association of cerebral cysticerciasis with a multifocal glioma. Interactions discussed

Association of cerebral cysticerciasis with a multifocal glioma. Interactions discussed

Revue Neurologique 143(12): 844-849

A case of cerebral cysticerciasis associated with multifocal glioma in a 53-year-old Portuguese woman is described; it is believed to be the first report of such a case. The patient died 6 months after admission to hospital despite 2 courses of praziquantel and corticotherapy. Post-mortem examination confirmed cerebral cysticerciasis and revealed a multifocal astrocytic tumour involving mainly the periventricular regions.
