A population-based, case-control study of Taenia solium taeniasis and cysticercosis



A population-based, case-control study of Taenia solium taeniasis and cysticercosis



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 93(3): 247-258



A two-phase study was conducted in a rural community in Honduras to evaluate the association between neurocysticercosis (NCC) diagnosed by computed tomography (CT), epilepsy, seropositivity for antibodies to the cysticerci of Taenia solium (determined by enzyme-linked-immunoelectrotransfer-blot (EITB) assays), intestinal infection with this parasite, and various epidemiological factors.
