Man Hospitalized With Seizures Discovers Tapeworm Was in Brain for Decades

The researchers and the health officials who took care of the matter reported that the man had been brought into the hospital because he was having seizures and talking gibberish. The first time they say the man break into a seizure in the hospital, it seemed too much be like a normal seizure, but his eyes were open when he was having the seizure. He was looking upward and then started to talk a lot of nonsense and gibberish, even to simple questions.

They did a lot of tests on him to figure out what was actually causing the seizures. It was a long process, and they had to eliminate everything that they can to figure out why he was breaking into sudden fits of seizures when there was apparently no problem with any of his body parts, internal and external. He seemed to be a very healthy hound adult, and he even was doing great one day before the patient did not have any history of alcohol or drug use either.

Finally, the doctors noted the tapeworm that had been living in the man’s brain for decades. He was treated for it soon enough and had now been discharged after the completion of the dosage.
