ABSTRACTNeurocysticercosis is a disease that even nowadays is of high prevalence, the clinical and imagenological diagnosis present a challenge to the clinician regardless of the great advances in the laboratory and imaging fields. neurocysticercosis is a cause of research and neuroimaging has been able to explain its evolution to a certain extent. Reports have been made related to immunologic interactions between the host and the parasite, and the most significant, the controversy of the relation of neurocysticercosis with tumoral processes. We present a case that received the initial diagnosis of lymphoma in which afterwards, according to short term imagenologic evolution and response to treatment, the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis was confirmed.
