Cerebral Hydatid Cyst in a Young Immunocompromised Patient in Parakou

Résumé

We report the case of a 30-year-old human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive HIV patient who was poorly followed. She was admitted on November 30, 2017, for the management of febrile encephalitis syndrome with motor deficit of the left hemicorps and generalized seizures. In biology, we found a nonspecific inflammatory syndrome. The cerebral imaging without and with injection found a cystic formation multilobed right fronto-parietal of approximately 83 mm × 62 mm, the presence of an annular calcification of approximately 8 mm with a commitment under falcator, and a contralateral ventricle dilation. Treatment with antiepileptic, antibiotic, antiparasitic, and corticosteroid therapy was marked by death the day before the neurosurgical procedure after initial improvement
