Abstract

A patient with meningeal irritation and a small occipital cystic lesion is presented. Based on serological tests, the condition was diagnosed as presumably echinococcosis. To our knowledge, meningeal irritation has previously not been reported as an early symptom of cerebral Echinococcus infestation. Cysticercosis is discussed as a possible differential diagnosis.
