Figure 13: A 44-year-old male patient with a history of retroviral disease on highly active antiretroviral therapy. There is previous history of tuberculosis. Clinical diagnosis of stroke was made. Nonenhanced axial computed tomographic scan images demonstrated 6 mm oval-shaped low-attenuation area in the right basal ganglia suggestive of lacunar infarct. There is another subcentimeter low-attenuation area in the right thalamic region in keeping with thalamic lacunar infarct. Multiple calcifications were noted in both cerebral hemispheres in keeping with calcified tuberculosis granuloma. Differential diagnosis is calcified neurocysticercosis
