|Title:||Spinal Cord Cysticercosis: Report Of 2 Cases, Review Of The Literature, And Comments On Its Pathogeny [cisticercose Medular. Relato De Dois Casos, Revisão Da Literatura E Comentários Sobre A Patogenia.]|
Limoli Junior C.
|Abstract:||A case of spinal intramedullary cysticercosis in a 13-year-old Brazilian female and a case of spinal leptomeningeal infestation by cysticercosis in a 51 year-old Brazilian female are presented. A review of 95 published cases of medullar cysticercosis since 1856 shows the incidence of this condition. Extramedullary forms are explained by the downward migration of larvae from the cerebral to the spinal subarachnoid space and most larvae are expected to be stopped in the upper portions of the spinal canal due to peculiarities of the anatomy of the spinal cord.|
