6 doctors agree
In brief: Low
In most patients with neurocysticercosis, the prognosis is good.
Associated seizures seem to improve after treatment with anticysticercal drugs and, once treated, the seizures are controlled by a first-line antiepileptic agent. Duration of treatment, however, is not defined. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1168656-overview#aw2aab6b2b4aa.
