*Miray Louis de Gonzague, Tomboravo Christian, Lemahafaka Jemissaire Glorien Herilalainanandrianina Julienne Cyris, Rafanomezantsoa Rindra and Raobela Léa

ABSTRACT

Background: Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is defined as a nervous system infection by the larval stage of Taenia solium. Cysticercosis is emerging as a serious public health issue in Madagascar and is endemic largely due to the persistence of traditional pig husbandry practices and the lack of knowledge about the disease and general poor hygiene. Purpose: to report a case of patient who becomes disabled due to neurocysticercosis. Observation: We report a case of 32-yearold malagasy man admitted in ophtalmology service of Tambohobe hospital Fianarantsoa in october 2019 for vision loss and step disorders. Ophtalmological examination noted bilateral cecity, bilateral nystamus and optic disc atrophies in both eyes. He presented an abnormal movement while walking. Biological findings and cranial computed tomography (CT) scan diagnosed a neurocysticercosis.

Keywords: Disabling, Fianarantsoa, Hygiene, Madagascar, Neurocysticercosis.
