Sažetak
Neurocysticercosis (cysticercosis cerebri) is a rare neurological diagnosis in Croatia. It is classically divided into four types: intraparenchymal basilar cisernal, ventricular and diffuse. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) established the diagnosis by demonstrating cysticercosis disseminated throughout the cerebral parenchyma. The authors emphasize the potential of the ELISA test to detect anticysticercosis antibodies in blood and cerebrospinal liquor (CSF). Diagnostics of neurocysticercosis is enabled jointly by clinical signs, neuroradiological, serum and liquor tests.We report the case of a 70-year old man with clinical and neuroradiological signs of cysticercosis cerebri. The neurological status is dominated by ataxia, corticospinal pathways damages and cognitive capacity impairmeats. CT of the brain shows calcificated and cystic lesions of various sizes. MRI of the brain enables the final diagnosis of the cysticercosis cerebri with multiple and multicentric lesions that indicate various stages of the cerebral cysticercosis.
