Diagnosis

Neurocysticercosis is diagnosed by neuroimag-ing and serologic testing.

Definitive diagnosis of NCC can be made if there is histopathologic diagnosis of NCC, a scolex within a cystic lesion visualized by CT or MRI or lesion(s) suggestive of NCC by neuroimaging, or clinical response to treatment of NCC, combined with serologic evidence of T. solium infection by serum enzyme-linked immuno-electrotransfer blot (EITB) or CSF enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) [19].
