What is the causative agent of neurocysticercosis?
Larval form of pork intestinal tapeworm (Taenia solium).
A well defined thin walled cystic lesion is noted within the third ventricle causing its expansion. It is hypointense on T1, hyperintense on T2 and suppressed on FLAIR images. An eccentric enhancing nodule is seen within this lesion, findings are suggestive of intraventricular cysticercosis.
Mild to moderate dilatation of bilateral lateral ventricles with periventricular ooze is noted
