Taenia solium is still endemic in most of the developing world. Neurocysticercosis (NCC), the invasion of the human central nervous system by its larval stage or cysticercus, is a major cause of seizures and epilepsy in endemic regions, where it accounts for approximately 30% of cases. While the clinical expression of NCC has been studied for many years, its pathogenesis is not well-understood, in particular the mechanisms leading to brain inflammation, brain damage and epileptogenesis. This Special Issue will collate articles on epidemiology/control, pathogenesis, clinical expression, diagnosis, and the treatment of human and animal neurocysticercosis to provide readers with an updated body of information that reflects the advances made in this field of research over the past decades.
