Truncal seizures: an unusual presentation of cerebral cysticercosis

, : Truncal seizures: an unusual presentation of cerebral cysticercosis. Annals of Emergency Medicine 15(11): 1360-1362

We present the case of a 24-year-old woman who developed repetitive partial simple seizures confined to her right rib cage. Computed tomography scan of the head was consistent with the diagnosis of cerebral cysticercosis. The patient was started on a regimen of anticonvulsants, steroids, and praziquantel with full resolution of symptoms.

Objectives: Percutaneous penetration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is affected by various factors connected to exposure conditions. The nature of the matrix, such as that of oil, can strongly affect their percutaneous penetration. Ris...
