Abstract

Abstract.

A 50-year-old Chinese woman with a history of weakness and paroxysmal seizures of the left limb presented to our hospital with a ten-day history of neck pain. Imaging showed that there was a mass in the frontal lobe of her brain. On resection of the mass, a motile worm was identified. Morphological observation and molecular analysis of the mitochondrial COX1 and 28S rRNA genes of the worm extracted from the brain identified the causative agent as . Homology search of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified products from the case was conducted against gene fragments from local wild frogs. High homology was found between them, showing her likely exposure was frog consumption.
