A 43-year-old man presented with a 3 month history of headache, vertigo and swaying while walking. MRI of the brain showed cystic lesions involving the cerebellopontine angle cisterns, the right perimedullary cistern, the fourth ventricle and bilateral foramen of Luschka with resultant obstruction to cerebrospinal fluid outflow and hydrocephalus. The patient underwent right retromastoid craniotomy with endoscopic third ventriculostomy for cyst excision. The postoperative period was uneventful and he was able to carry out routine activities within a month. This case report stresses on the clinical importance, unique characteristics and imaging features of racemose neurocysticercosis.
