Neurocysticercosis (NCC) has been associated with a high frequency of DNA damage in human circulating lymphocytes and more recently with the development of hematological malignancies. Chronic inflammation, a common feature of helminthic infections, has been proposed to play a key role in carcinogenesis induced by parasites. However, this mechanism is more likely to occur during local tumorigenesis rather than in systemic neoplasia such as that reported for patients with NCC. As an alternative… CONTINUE READING
