#radiology #RMI #radiologytechnologist show the path a rare worm ran for #4 #years within the patient's #brain.  With only 1 cm to 5 cm worm has come to the right side of the brain and 5cm to the left, in a space of four. 
This type of tapeworm has scientific name #Spirometra #erinaceieuropaei. It infects #domestic #animals and #humans. When humans are infected, the disease is called #esparganosis. 
Its origin takes place in the Far East. It is considered an #extremely #rare #disease, because there were only about #300 #cases reported worldwide since 1953.  It causes inflammation of body tissues, severe seizures, memory loss, and severe headache. 
Very little is known about the #parasite, although it is believed that people can be affected by it accidentally consuming tiny #crustaceans infected lakes, eating raw meat of reptiles and amphibians, or using a kind of raw sapo as medicine in Chinese medicine for calm and "cure" eye problems.  This worm is highly #resistant to drugs used to tapeworm. Doctors also warned people who will travel to "exotic countries" be very careful with what they eat and what they drink as they may be at risk of contamination. 
The worm's genes were #studied in #Cambridge, to find out which drugs would be possible to use if other #infected patients appear.
