Intraventricular Cysticercosis-MRI

Intraventricular infestation of neurocysticercosis is relatively rare, and it is usually associated with multiple sites of ventricular and parenchymal lesions. Intraventricular cysts are typically 1-2 cm in diameter and show surrounding ependymal inflammatory reaction. Note the cystic lesion in IV ventricle with turbulent flow in IV ventricle and ependymal reaction. There was resultant obstructive hydrocephalus.
