Abstract

Human cysticercosis is caused by cystic tissue larvae of Taenia solium acquired by ingesting the eggs of the T. solium tapeworm. The diagnosis of human cysticercosis can be made by radiologic imaging, tissue biopsy, or serology. Radiologic imaging, including MRI and CT, currently is the most effective means for diagnosis.
