Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the commonest parasitosis of the central nervous system (CNS), endemic in developing countries and is also seen in developed nations with high rates of immigration from prevalent areas. Co-infection of ocular tissue is also significant and often ophthalmologists come across these lesions in their clinical practice. The mode of treatment in NCC and that of intraocular cysticercosis is somewhat different as far as antiparasitic treatment is concerned. This case report highlights the proper management of this parasitic infestation which involved both eye and brain.Keywords: neurocysticercosis, endemic, scolex, corticosteroid
