ABSTRACT
Albendazole is a new drug for the treatment of cerebral cysticercosis. We have recently experience a case that had shown poor therapeutic response to praziquantel. The patient have multiple parenchymal cysts. She was treated with 15mg/kg/day of albendazole for 1 month to confirm healing of the intracranial lesion by the follow up brain CT scan and CSF-ELISA associated with marked clinical improvement.
Key Words: Albendazole; Neurocysticercosis; Chemotherapy
