Are mortality rates high with cysticercosis of the nervous system?

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.
Cysticercosis. Depends on extent of involvement of the nervous system and response to treatment.
