Thanks Curofy and all Doctors who tried to answer the case . Child is under pediatric neurologist. Started Albendazole with steroid on the day of admission .ELISA for NCC - ve. CSF ROUTIEN INCONCLUSIVE .GENE EXPERT + ve. 1week albendazole with steroid, deteriorated the level of conciousness. Started ATT. Child is better.Still in the hospital. MRI report: Numerous well defind subcentimetric lesions in gray white matter junction of bilateral cerebral hemisphere , and in the cerebellar hemisphere, in the brain stem, capsuloganglionic areas which shows central hypointensity with peripheral hyperintense rim on T2/ FLAIR images and show ring enhancement on post contrast images.The lesion in RT high frontal lobe appear conglomerate.Linear and nodular enhancing areas noted in bilateral superior cerebellar folia, bilateral parietal, frontal and Rt occipital lobe, temporal lobe sulci. Patchy areas of diffusion restriction noted in bilateral superior cerebellum - likely leptomeningitis. Imp : The spectrum of findings suggest possibility of solid caseating tuberculosis.Cebteal hypointense T2 signals favours Tuberculoma.No eccentric muscle nodule, no varying stages of neurocercosis, no adjacent muscle involvement - unfavourable diagnosis of Neurocysticercosis. Leptomeninges involvement favours tuberculou etiology
