Histological and molecular biology diagnosis of neurocysticercosis in a patient without history of travel to endemic areas: case report
BACKGROUND: in endemic areas, neurocysticercosis appears mainly as a single, large, spherical and non-enhancing intracranial cyst. CASE PRESENTATION: an atypical case of neurocysticercosis (NCC) in a French Caucasian, without history of travel to endemic areas, was confirmed by histology and molecular speciation. Imaging was atypical, showing several hook-bearing scolices visible in the cyst, while the serology employed was non-contributary. CONCLUSIONS: NCC should be considered when multiple taeniid scolices are observed within the same cystic lesion.
