Had a patient who had seizures from this. He had several. They did a CT scan, you could see them.

The info they gave on the video is slightly misleading, but the basic point is valid. Taenia solium is a tapeworm who's normal lifecycle is to form cysts in pigs muscles, which are eaten by man where the adult worm lives in the small intestine. The major problem is when someone has the adult worm that is sheding eggs in thier feces, does not was thier hands, and spreads these eggs in food. In nature (or less developed countries eg. Mexico) pigs will come and pick up these feces and continue the normal life cycle, but if another human ingests these eggs, the larvae do not know where to go, and will can migrate to the brain causing neurocysticercosis.

So yes, wash your hands if you dont want to get it, cook your pork so you don't give it to anyone else, and above all, don't feed your feces to the pigs!
