 Synonyms & Historicals
Neurocysticercosis .
Brain Cysticercosis .
Neurocysticercoses .
Cysticercosis, Brain .
Central Nervous System Cysticercosis .
Cysticercosis, Central Nervous System .
Infection of the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal structures with the larval forms of the genus TAENIA (primarily T. solium in humans). Lesions formed by the organism are referred to as cysticerci. The infection may be subacute or chronic, and the severity of symptoms depends on the severity of the host immune response and the location and number of lesions. SEIZURES represent the most common clinical manifestation although focal neurologic deficits may occur. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch27, pp46-50) .
Cysticercosis .
Cysticercoses .
Infection with CYSTICERCUS, the larval form of the various tapeworms of the genus Taenia (usually T. solium in man). In humans they penetrate the intestinal wall and invade subcutaneous tissue, brain, eye, muscle, heart, liver, lung, and peritoneum. Brain involvement results in NEUROCYSTICERCOSIS. .
Neurotic Disorders .
Disorder, Neurotic .
Disorders, Neurotic .
Neurotic Disorder .
Neuroses .
Psychoneuroses .
Disorders in which the symptoms are distressing to the individual and recognized by him or her as being unacceptable. Social relationships may be greatly affected but usually remain within acceptable limits. The disturbance is relatively enduring or recurrent without treatment. .
Neurocan .
Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan 3 .
A hyalectin family member that is expressed in neuronal tissue and plays a role in neuronal CELL ADHESION. .
Neurocytoma .
Central Neurocytoma .
Central Neurocytomas .
Neurocytomas .
Neurocytomas, Central .
Neurocytoma, Central .
A benign brain tumor composed of neural elements which most often arise from the SEPTUM PELLUCIDUM and the walls of the lateral ventricles. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy evaluations may reveal expression of neuron specific enolase and synaptophysin and cells containing microtubuli, neurosecretory granules, and presynaptic vesicles. (From Acta Med Port 1994 Feb;7(2):113-9) .
Neurons .
Cell, Nerve .
Cells, Nerve .
Nerve Cell .
Neuron .
Nerve Cells .
The basic cellular units of nervous tissue. Each neuron consists of a body, an axon, and dendrites. Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM. .
Neuroma .
Neuromas .
A tumor made up of nerve cells and nerve fibers. (Dorland, 27th ed) .
