cen·u·ro·sis

, cenuriasis (sen'yū-rō'sis, sen-yū-rī'ă-sis),
Disease produced by the presence of a cenuris cyst that, in sheep, causes a brain infection known as "gid" for the giddy gait induced in the infected animal; human cenurosis has been reported but is extremely unusual, in contrast with hydatid disease.
Synonym(s): coenurosis

coenurosis

/coe·nu·ro·sis/ (se″nu-ro´sis) infection by coenurus; a rare infection in humans is manifest as cysts in the central nervous system and increased intracranial pressure.

coenurosis

infection with the intermediate stage of Taenia multiceps which invades the brain and spinal cord of sheep and causes a variety of syndromes characteristic of slowly developing space-occupying lesions of the nervous system. Ataxia, head-pressing, somnolence and occasional convulsions are common signs of brain involvement. Paralysis and recumbency are the usual signs in spinal cord involvement. Called also gid, sturdy.
