My husband had a seizure about two weeks ago and a subsequent MRI showed what an infectious disease specialist suspects is cysticercosis. They also did a bloodtest; we don't have the results yet. I know that a definitive diagnosis is difficult to arrive at even with an MRI and a bloodtest. Does anyone know more about diagnosing this infection? I read that one can analyze spinal fluid but that procedure itself sounds dangerous. We appreciate any information and ideas.
