|Abstract:||Neurocysticercosis is a common neuroparasitosis. Presentation with psychiatric symptoms is uncommon in neurocysticercosis. The present paper describes a patient who presented with mutism, neglect of personal care and incontinence in a psychiatric setting and investigations revealed diagnosis of neurocysticercosis. The case report highlights the possible misdiagnoses of a case of neurocysticercosis as psychiatric illness and mutism as an uncommon presentation of neurocysticercosis.|
