Abstract
Cysticercosis infestation is a cosmopolitan disease. Recently we experienced six cases of intracranial cysticercosis in childhood, three of them were male and their age distributed from 2 to 15 years. Their main clinical manifestations were symptoms of increased intracranial pressure signs and other neurological sings as well, In diagnostic procedures, brain C-T scan was performed in all cases and Conray ventriculography was very helpful in cases of intra-ventricular location of cysticerci. By surgical exploration, single cysticerci were removed from 4 th ventricle in five cases, and cysticercus racemosus was found in subdural space in one cases. Five cases were successfully cured and one case was died of persistent brain swelling after surgical manipulation.
Key Words: Intracranial cysticercosis, Conray ventriculography, Brain C-T scan
