Abstract

 Neurocysticercosis, is the infection caused by the larval form of the TAPEWORM Taenia solium. It is considered as the most common parasitic disease of the central nervous system and the most common cause of acquired EPILEPSY. This has primarily been a disease that remains endemic in countries with poor economy, but because of increased migration neurocysticercosis is being diagnosed more frequently worldwide. During the past decades improved diagnostics, imaging, and treatment have led to more accurate diagnosis and improved prognosis for patients. This article is a review about the current data about neurocysticercosis, including recent diagnostics and treatment developments.
