Figure 2: (Left panel) Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain T1-weighted sequence showing multiple hypointense cystic lesions, some with eccentric peripheral enhancement (arrowheads) and some with intracystic nodules suggestive of scolex (arrows). The head of the larva in the cyst gives the lesion a pathognomonic 'hole-with-dot' appearance. (Right panel) MRI brain T2-weighted sequence showing multiple hyperintense cystic lesions with intracystic hypointensity suggestive of scolex (arrows).
