A preliminary report of praziquantel (PZQ) treatment in 10 patients with cysticercosis in Vietnam is presented. One patient with a severe neurological disorder died (probably due to increased intracranial pressure). 9 patients were treated with relatively low dose PZQ (15-20 mg/kg). Almost all subcutaneous cysts disappeared while patients with neurological symptoms showed definite improvement.
