If CT is normal, still it can be Metabolic coma Poisoning , suicidal attempt. Encephalitis, meningitis. Need details of all the investigations done. LP needed Blood Toxicology profile needed . Just given the photo of the lesion without history, it resembles Tenia infection and may not be related to the present condition of patient.
