Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is a leading cause of seizures and epilepsy worldwide. Its clinical manifestations are varied, non specific and pleomorphic, depending on multiple factors. Since NCC mimic large number of neurological disorders, it is important that clinicians should be familiar with these rare presentations to avoid delay in diagnosis and management. We herein describe an unusual case of multiple NCC’s involving entire cortex with only cognitive and behavioural manifestations and review pertinent literature.
