Abstract

Neurocysticercosis is the most common parasitic infestation of the central nervous system which manifests commonly as acute onset focal seizures. We report a rare clinical presentation of neurocysticercosis in a 1-year-old infant who presented with involuntary movements. Involuntary movements are not a common manifestation. Young children are rarely affected by this disease. In endemic areas, when a child presents with seizures or unusual neurological features and the CT scan shows contrast enhancing lesions or cystic lesions neurocysticercosis should be considered however young the child may be.
