Discussion of treatments for Neurocysticercosis:
I have been diagnosed with
neurocysticercosis. My health care provider has decided not to treat me.
How was this decision made?
Often, the decision of
whether or not to treat neurocysticercosis is based upon the number of
lesions found in the brain and the symptoms you have. When only one lesion
is found, often treatment is not given. If you have more than one lesion,
specific anti-parasitic treatment is generally recommended.
If the brain lesion is
considered calcified (this means that a hard shell has formed around the
tapeworm larvae), the cysticerci is considered dead and specific
anti-parasitic treatment is not beneficial.
As the cysticerci die,
the lesion will shrink. The swelling will go down, and often symptoms
(such as seizures) will go away. (Source: excerpt from Cysticercosis: DPD)
