CT scans showing different phases of
neurocysticercosis.Top left: CT scan
showing many calcifications and active
cysts with scolices in both
hemispheres.Top right: T1-weighted
MRI showing 2 active cysts with the
scolex in their interior (vesicular
phase).Bottom left: Postcontrast CT
scan showing a ring-enhancing cyst
(colloidal phase) on left.Bottom right:
Proton density-weighted MRI showing a
thick capsule with adjacent scolex and
perilesional edema (colloidal phase).
oatural history of
neurocysticercosis.Top left: This CT
scan shows a large occipital active
cyst (vesicle phase), many
calcifications, and small cortical
cysts.Top right: After 18 months, the
occipital cyst has been replaced by a
calcification and the remaining cysts
have disappeared.Bottom left: A single
parietal nodular-enhancing lesion
(transitional, nodular-granular phase)
is shown.Bottom right: ix months
later, the lesion has disappeared.
