Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0010678

NCI Thesaurus Code: C34520  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: A parasitic infection caused by the larval form of Taenia solium. It is a disseminated infection affecting the central nervous system, subcutaneous tissues, lungs, heart and liver. The most serious complications result from infection of the brain parenchyma. Patients may develop seizures, hydrocephalus, encephalopathy and meningoencephalitis.

GARD Definition: Cysticercosis is an infectious disorder caused by the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. Infection occurs when the tapeworm larvae enter the body and form cysticeri (cysts). The tapeworm eggs are spread through food, water, or other surfaces contaminated with feces. The signs and symptoms vary depending on the location and number of cysticeri in the affected person's body. Symptoms can present months to years after the infection. Diagnosing cysticercosis can be challenging and may involve several test, including MRI or CT brain scans and blood tests. Although treatment is available and may include anti-parasitic drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, and/or surgery, it is not always necessary. - this information is from GARD/ORDR/NCATS.

NICHD Definition: A disseminated infection of tissues or organs that is caused by the larval stage of Taenia solium.

MSH Definition: Infection with CYSTICERCUS, the larval form of the various tapeworms of the genus Taenia (usually T. solium in man). In humans they penetrate the intestinal wall and invade subcutaneous tissue, brain, eye, muscle, heart, liver, lung, and peritoneum. Brain involvement results in NEUROCYSTICERCOSIS.
