Correct :)
This is a case of neurocysticercosis characterized by multiple cysts with surprisingly less CNS symptoms.

The distractors are:

Raising sheep --- Echinococcus granulosus, usually causing a single large cyst.
Dogs & Cats ---- Toxoplasmosis, should show typical ring enhancement
Mosquito bite --- cerebral malaria has no radiologic findings
Eating dirt (pica) ---- visceral larva migrans (toxocara canis) may cause cerebral granulomas
