Hello,

Please find the response point by point



what is the cause of calcfied granuloma ?

Ans: Most likely it is due to infection by a worm called as neurocysticercosis



what has to be done when the fits repeat ?

Ask your doctor to optimize the dose of Eptoin. During fits, just turn him to a side. Donot give water in his mouth. He will automatically recover within 5-10 minutes. If he doesn't recover by them, take him to a hospital.



any first aid required during fits? Most of the fits generally recover within the time limit i mentioned earlier. No first aid is required



how long tablets has to be taken? preferably for 2-3 years

is it removable or it leads any other disease if it is remain?

It does not need to be removed. It will not cause any other problem



any precaution can be taken to avoid fits? Pls guide us? Take the Eptoin tablet regularly without missing. Avoid driving, swimming for about 6 months at least



Best wishes
