Cysticercosis is one of the most common parasitic diseases of the nervous system in humans, and constitutes a major public health problem for most of the developing world. The clinical manifestations of Neurocysticercosis (NCC) largely depend on the host immune response against the parasite. NCC diagnosis is based upon neuroimaging studies (Computerized Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and antibody/ antigen detection in the serum and the cerebrospinal fluid. Anticysticercal therapy has been marked by an intense controversy.
