Abstract

We report an example of subarachnoid neurocysticercosis located in the left cerebellopontine cistern of a 60 year-old man. The negative results of the serum and cerebrospinal fluid tests for parasites and the unusual MRI findings, such as the uncommon shape, location and extension pattern, made differential diagnosis difficult. Neurocysticercosis was confirmed by surgical and histopathological findings. The clinical and radiographic features of neurocysticercosis are highly variable. In an endemic area, neurocysticercosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
