Cysticercosis-MRI




Cysticercosis, or neurocysticercosis, is the most common parasitic infestation of the central nervous system worldwide. Humans develop cysticercosis when they ingest eggs or larvae of the tapeworm Taenia solium. The eggs and larvae are usually found in fecally-contaminated water and undercooked pork. The larvae of T. solium are able to invade tissue, and enter the bloodstream. From there, they are able to spread to many organs (skeletal muscle, heart, eye, brain, spinal cord) and form cysts in tissue called cysticerci. This case shows numerous cysts in all the paraspinal muscles and conus medullaris.
