The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Department of Neurosurgery, "Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed extradural multiple cysts with 'bunch of grapes' appearance extended to the paraspinal muscles through neural foramina without bony involvement on computed tomography (CT) scan. Histopathologic examination after a surgical approach confirmed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. The early postoperative period showed a progressive improvement of her neurological deficit."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The long-term follow-up under discontinued antihelminthic chemotherapy was uneventful."
