Neurocysticercosis is the commonest cause of adult onset of seizures or epilepsy. It is the most common parasitic infection of the brain or central nervous system worldwide and the most common cause of adult onset epilepsy. It is caused by the encysted larval stage of the “Pork Tapeworm” (Tenia solium).
Neurocysticercosis is more common in developing countries and is endemic in Mexico and Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, India, and East Asia. It has been widely reported in India, more so from the northern parts, and is one of the leading causes of pediatric epilepsy.
