Neurosurgery

Earlier reports have suggested surgical excision to be the treatment of choice [23,24]. Simple aspiration of the cyst was discouraged, unless removal was possible. The challenge of surgery is to remove the cyst intact, avoiding spillage of the contents, which can disseminate the disease process or, rarely, produce an ana-phylactic reaction [24]. Removal is most easily accomplished by cortical incision and exposure of the cyst, followed by hydraulic dissection of the capsule, using gentle irrigation to separate the cyst wall from the surrounding brain to which the attachment is generally tenuous. The results of excision are variable, with poorer outcomes associated with inability to remove the cyst intact. More recently, it has been suggested that burr-hole aspiration, followed by systemic chemotherapy with mebendazole or albenda-zole, may be equally effective.
