See comments: Not sure of your precise question, but will comment on your results. The lesions could raise a question of an old parasitic infection possibly cysticercosis, and would be well to check a stool sample for ova and parasites. Plain x-rays of your thigh muscles might show similar calcifications and confirm this diagnosis. You might benefit from an opinion from a neurologist, or infectious disease. ...Read more
