  • 00:00:00 Cistitis is an infection caused by the larva of the taenia solium parasite. This infection is endemic in undeveloped countries where pigs are raised as a food source. Neurocisticercosis, the result of this parasite's complex life cycle, is common in all of Hispanic America. The taenia solium parasite has a complex life cycle that includes two host animals: the human and the pig. The human is the only definitive host and the parasite harbours its adult forms in the intestinal tract, but both people and pigs can serve as intermediate hosts and find larval or cisticercous forms within them. With respect to symptoms and signs, the formation of fibrous tissue swellings in the tissue can only result in local inflammation, which has a low mortality rate when compared to the possible damage of neurocisticercosis. The most frequent manifestation of neurocisticercosis is epileptic seizures due to intraparenchymal fibrous tissue swellings, which account for 70-90% of cases. Physical examination of the patient who is experiencing convulsive seizures usually becomes normal. The least frequent symptoms are headache, nausea, vomiting, and changes in mood.
