Figure 1: Magnetic resonance imaging brain axial sections (a) T2- weighted image showing classical “starry sky” appearance of the brain studded with numerous cysticercal cysts. (b) Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery shows the inversion of the cysts with extensive vasogenic edema of white matter (arrows). (c) Postcontrast imaging of the brain shows thin rim enhancement of the lesions. Repeat magnetic resonance imaging performed after 2 weeks shows (d and e) reduction in the edema along the lesions
