ANNOTATION           A case of neurocysticercosis in a pig that was not exhibiting any neurological signs is reported. Necropsy findings showed viable metacestodes exclusively in the brain. However, serological examination of blood was negative for cysticercus antibodies. Histopathological examination revealed cysts with invaginated scolex in the bladder wall. Metacestodes from the brain yielded a positive PCR result with T. solium specific primers. Based on the histopathological findings and confirmed by the PCR, the diagnosis of T. solium neurocysticercosis is established. (Author's abstract)
