According to media reports, when the patient’s brain was scanned, doctors found swelling and three lesions in it. Both of these symptoms are signs of a parasitic infection called a neurocysticercosis infection (a parasitic disease of the nervous system). It can cause seizures and headaches in humans, and in severe cases, death of the patient.

Let me tell you that these tapeworms enter the human body only by eating raw or undercooked meat of infected animals. In many cases it can also enter the body from green vegetables. This worm reaches the stomach, intestines and then carries blood to the brain along with the food. Eggs of tapeworm can hatch in someone’s body and become larvae. The dangerous thing is that some of its eggs also spread in our body, due to which wounds start forming in the internal organs of the body.

If an infected person does not wash their hands thoroughly after going to the bathroom, the parasite can spread from person to person. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), parasitic infections can be spread through food or surfaces touched by an infected person. According to the CDC, pork infection is most common in rural areas of developing countries. Pigs roam freely and eat human feces.

According to the report, about 1000 people are hospitalized with neurocysticercosis every year in the United States. Most of these patients have traveled to countries where tapeworms are common. About 20 years ago, a case was reported in which patients had moved from rural areas to Boston, where the incidence of infections was higher. According to the Post, parasites usually die in the body within five to 10 years, but they can cause inflammation which can lead to headaches, pain and seizures.
