ABSTRACT

Cysticercosis is one of the most common parasitic infestations in humans. Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the commonest parasitosis of the central nervous system (CNS), endemic in developing countries and is also seen in developing nations with high rates of immigration from prevalent areas. It is infected by the undercooked pork or infected eggs of T.S (Taeniasolium) it transmits through the fecal oral route. After enter primarily affect the gut and spread throughout body through circulating blood. For a long period of time is asymptomatic in condition. Finally affects the focal neurological effects and seizures.An 8-year child presented with headache, fever, nausea and vomiting causing acute generalized seizure and having the habit of eating sludge and was found to have calcification without peripheral edema in the left parietal lobe of the brain. Brain imaging and immunological studies were suggestive of neurocysticercosis. The patient was treated with Ceftriaxone 500mg, Paracetamol 250mg and Albendazole 400mg (3/4th) for 3 days and discharged with Carbamazepine 100mg (1/2 tab). This case report highlights the proper management of this parasitic infestation which involved in brain in children. A planned approach to therapy is necessary to prevent complications.
