Abstract: A 30-year-old Indian migrant worker presented with seizures at the National University Hospital. A CT-scan of the brain showed multiple calcifications and cysts consistent with neurocysticercosis. Plain radiographs of the humeri and femora also revealed multiple soft tissue calcifications. He was given a course of anti-helminthic therapy and started on anti-epileptics. Neurocysticercosis is a common cause of seizures in endemic areas and must be considered in the differential diagnosis of epilepsy involving the members of the large community of migrant workers in Singapore.
