DISEASES OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM : PARASITES OF THE BRAIN. ECHINOCOCCUS - etiology, pathogenesis, symptoms and course of, recognition, prediction and prevention
In the Central nervous system occur tsistitserki and echinococci. They get into the body by eating contaminated vegetables and fruits (cysticerci) and during the infection from dogs, cows, pigs (Echinococcus).

When the chamber Echinococcus characteristic:
Can be observed and ataxic disorders (meningeal syndrome in localization in membranes).
When the multi hydatid cyst is rare) characteristic, depending on the localization:
Often there is progressive weight loss.
Consider the profession (work-related contact with dogs and other animals). You need to put the reaction Weinberg (deviation of complement by mixing the blood of patients with fluid if Echinococcus bladder of sheep or alcoholic extract of the dried residue of a liquid if Echinococcus bladder sheep) and skin reactions, Cuzzoni (the appearance of swelling at the injection into the thickness of the skin content if Echinococcus bubble). Special attention should be given to studying the disease.
To combat parasites are most essential for preventing penetration of parasites in the human body.
