New York has several doctors who have been doing research on these health problem. Google Dr. Christina Coyle from Jacobi Hospital. She has done researches and has experience with this infections. Heads up, the treatment is heavy and long. I am suffering the struggle of this problem too. I had a brain surgery and that was easier than the medications. Good luck

Surgery! I just experience my first brain surgery and by surprise they found a worm in my cyst. Now I am in treatment with albendazole and steroids. The treatment is worst than the surgery. The treatment will be for a year and steroids in high amounts produce other problems!
