Abstract

Neurocysticercosis is one of the most common infections of the central nervous system in the developing world. Most often, neurocysticerci are found in the brain parenchyma, at the gray-white matter junction. A rare form of neurocysticercosis is the development of cysts at the basal subarachnoid region, termed racemose neurocysticercosis.
