Neurocysticercosis (NCC), caused by the pork tapeworm Taenia solium, is reported to be a common condition in Nepal. So far imaging diagnosis was mainstay of the diagnosis. In this paper, we report three patients presenting with neurological symptoms due to intraventricular NCC. We have diagnosed the causative agent as T. solium on molecular basis. Further research is warranted to assess the actual health impact of T. solium in Nepal.
