MANZANO JUAREZ, Amparo; MARTINEZ GARCIA, María Pilar; MARTINEZ ANDRES, María José  and  SANCHEZ BETETA, María Pilar. Headache as clinical presentation of neurocysticercosis. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.2, pp.147-150. ISSN 2386-8201.

Neurocysticercosis is the most common parasitic disease of the central nervous system. Its frequency in our country has increased due to migratory movements. We report the case of a 58-year-old woman from Ecuador, with a history of recurrent headache, presented to the Emergency Department with daily hemicranial headache that does not respond to common analgesics. The presumptive diagnosis is determined in the emergency room after a correct anamnesis and laboratory tests, being confirmed in the Neurology Department.

Keywords : Eosinophilia; Neurocysticercosis; Headache.
