Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is a major cause of neurological morbidity in the world. The diagnosis of NCC is challenging in endemic and resource-limited countries where laboratory and imaging techniques are not available. Clinical manifestations are non-specific, most neuroimaging findings are non-pathognomonic, and some serologic tests have low sensitivity or specificity. The treatment of the NCC includes cysticidal drugs (e.g., albendazole and praziquantel), and neurosurgical procedure, depending upon the situation. Currently, there are several diagnostic and management issues which remain unresolved. This review will help to look the recently going diagnostic procedures and the medical management of the disease.
