Intraventricular neurocysticercosis is of concern because it is associated with a poorer prognosis than is parenchymatous disease. Frequently, associated hydrocephalus occurs, which may recur after treatment. We report on 11 patients with intraventricular cysticercosis (from a larger case series of 33 patients) and evaluate clinical presentations, neuroimaging findings, and responses to treatment, especially of ventricular disease. Intraventricular cysticercosis represented 33% of our cases… CONTINUE READING
