The authors emphasize the importance of computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis. Before CT, neurocysticercosis was considered rare in the Northeast Brazil. They reviewed fifteen cases diagnosed as neurocysticercosis by CT at the Institute of Radiology, in Natal. A case of neurocysticercosis diagnosed by CT and CSF is reported.
