[About an autochtonous case of neurocysticercosis in Mali].

Abstract : Cysticercosis has been reported in Muslim countries in workers coming from endemic regions for Taenia solium. For the first time in Mali, the authors report a case of autochtonous neurocysticercosis where Muslim religion is predominent. The patient was a woman student with fever, arthralgia, headaches, consciousness troubles followed by partial motor epilepsy. Diagnosis was confirmed by clinic, serology ELISA and Western blotting and cephalic tomodensitometry analysis. The medical treatment was successfully based on combination of albendazole and praziquantel. The origin of contamination remains unknown and further investigations are needed, particularly with veterinary research team and the National League against epilepsy recently founded in Mali.
