Neurocysticercosis (NCC). Report a Case

Abstract

Abstract

NCC is recognized as a common cause of neurologic disease in developing countries, and it is also seen in developed countries, including the United States. NCC is a chronic disease associated with substantial morbidity and high social and economic costs. A minimal estimate of annual treatment costs in the United States (a country in which NCC is not endemic) is $9 million; in Mexico and Brazil, costs are estimated to be nearly $90 million per year..The pathogenesis and clinical presentation vary with the site of infection and the host immune response. NCC poses a complex diagnostic and treatment dilemma because of its varied presentation. Factors determining treatment include whether symptoms are present, the location of the cysts, and whether there is a host immune responses key to preventing its serious consequences.12,13 Unfortunately, early detection of the disease is sometimes difficult, because the symptoms may be subtle and may not appear in the beginning stages of growth. Also, vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus and inner ear problems. Therefore, once the symptoms appear, a thorough ear examination and hearing test are essential the study the vestibular function through of vestibuloespinal, retinalocular, vestibuloocular systems in the Cranio-Corpo-Graphy (CCG), the Test of Balance(TOB) and the Computarized Electronystagmography (CNG)14,15 in order to determine and orientate a better vestibular diagnosis. Auditory Evoked Potentials, Computerized Tomography(CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are helpful in determining the location and size of a tumor and also in planning its removal.
