Chinese Abstract

中樞神經囊尾幼蟲症是豬肉絛蟲幼蟲所引起,且為中央神經系統受寄生蟲感染最常見的病症之一。豬肉絛蟲在臺灣原住民是相當重要的健康問題,此一病症在臺灣地區有零星研究報告,但整體盛行率並不清楚。因此我們報告一個經手術切除證實中樞神經囊尾幼蟲症的病例。

English Abstract

Neurocysticercosis (NC) in the central nervous system (CNS) caused by Taenia solium (TS) larvae is the most common worldwide parasitic infection. TS is an important medical issue in Taiwan aborigines. However, NC is reported sporadically and its prevalence is unclear in the general population in Taiwan. We reported a case of NC diagnosis on the basis of surgical resection.
