Abstract

Cysticercosis is a common tropical disease though rare in Bangladesh. One of the common manifestations of cysticercosis is Neurocysticercosis (NCC). We report an immunocompetent patient with neurocysticercosis. He was otherwise asymptomatic in spite of the extensive involvement of central nervous system. A planned approach to therapy is necessary to prevent further deterioration.
