Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is frequently seen in Latin America, South East Asia and Africa, it is rare in Western Europe and Muslim countries. This case report is found to be valuable for presentation due to isolated CNS involvement of NCC, high cystic lesion load and resistance to the antihelmintic agents. NCC is rare in Muslim countries, it should be considered in differential diagnosis of the patients with cystic lesions in CNS.

Key words: Neurocysticercosis, antihelmintic agents, multiple cystic lesions
