Multiple calcified neurocysticercosis (CT)

Computed tomography of brain revealed multiple dot-like hyperdense lesions with perifocal edema. The patient presented with recurrent seizures and required antiepileptics. Calcified lesions represent dead cysts, so albendazole therapy is not needed. Seizures in these patients are usually easily controllable. (Contributed by Dr. Ravindra Kumar Garg.)
