CLINICAL HISTORY: Intradural, extramedullary cervical spinal involvement is an unusual manifestation of neurocysticercosis.
CASE REPORT: A case of a middle-aged man with neurocysticercosis within the intradural extramedullary cervical backbone and mind who initially offered with bilateral paresthesias of his extremities, with a progressively unsteady gait. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed cystic enhancing lesions within the mind and cervical area of the backbone, with the biggest cyst extending from the posterior fossa by means of C2, inflicting spinal twine compression. The affected person underwent surgical resection of the intradural extramedullary cervical spinal lesions, and he has continued to enhance clinically, with no recurrence of cystic lesions.
CONCLUSION: When inspecting sufferers with scientific indicators of a spinal mass lesion, the differential analysis ought to embody neurocysticercosis of the backbone.
