Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

You might be having old infection by neurocysticercosis in the brain (above mentioned areas). When the worm is alive it multiples but when it dies it gets calcified and that is what is seen in your CT scan. If you have seizures, you must take anti epileptic medications for months to years. Always follow hygiene while eating and wash your hands before meals. Eat properly cooked food. If you are regularly having seizures then avoid high risk activities like swimming, driving, cooking and operating heavy machinery.
