Abstract

In patients with human immunodeficiency virus, the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis can be complex, and the current diagnostic criteria may not apply. We report 3 cases and suggest including the CD4+ T lymphocyte count as an important factor in the proper diagnosis and treatment of patients with human immunodeficiency virus and potential neurocysticercosis.
