  • Neurocysticercosis is a major cause of acquired epilepsy around the globe. The racemose form of this disease, which has a predilection for the subarachnoid space, is rare in the US. The patient described here had a combination of intraventricular and subarachnoid cysticercal cysts. In the following report, the CT and MR characteristics of this rare form of neurocysticercosis both before and after treatment are described, and the current issues surrounding management are briefly discussed.
