NIH Rare Diseases:42 Cysticercosis is an infectious disorder caused by the pork tapeworm, taenia solium. infection occurs when the tapeworm larvae enter the body and form cysticeri (cysts). the tapeworm eggs are spread through food, water, or other surfaces contaminated with feces. the signs and symptoms vary depending on the location and number of cysticeri in the affected person's body. symptoms can present months to years after the infection. diagnosing cysticercosis can be challenging and may involve several test, including mri or ct brain scans and blood tests. although treatment is available and may include anti-parasitic drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, and/or surgery, it is not always necessary. last updated: 4/12/2010

MalaCards: Cysticercosis, also known as neurocysticercosis, is related to echinococcosis and hyperglycemia. An important gene associated with Cysticercosis is SLC5A2 (solute carrier family 5 (sodium/glucose cotransporter), member 2), and among its related pathways are Leishmaniasis and Malaria. The drugs albendazole and praziquantel and the compounds endotoxin and gm-csf have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and eye, and related mouse phenotypes are no phenotypic analysis and cellular.

Disease Ontology:8 A taeniasis that results from ingestion of eggs or larvae of the taenia solium tapeworm in undercooked pork or fecally contaminated food or water, which subsequently infect the central nervous system, heart, muscles, subcutaneous tissues, and eyes. neurocysticercosis causes seizures, mental disturbances, focal neurologic deficits and intracerebral lesions.

CDC:3 Cysticercosis is a parasitic tissue infection caused by larval cysts of the pork tapeworm. These larval cysts infect brain, muscle, or other tissue, and are a major cause of adult onset seizures in most low-income countries. An individual acquires cysticercosis from ingesting eggs excreted by a person who has an intestinal tapeworm. People living in the same household with a tapeworm carrier have a much higher risk of getting cysticercosis than others.
