A 39-year-old Bangladeshi man was admitted to our hospital with a first generalized epileptic seizure. Brain MRI showed multiple ring-enhancing lesions with perifocal edema (Fig. 1a and g, February 2008). CSF analysis showed 8 cells/μl and normal protein, glucose and lactate levels. Serum and CSF serological tests were negative for a broad range of parasites, fungi and bacteria.
