dc.description.abstract Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is an infection prevalent in developing countries; however, it is neglected in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and in sub-Saharan Africa. Here, we present three different cases seen in a consulting room in Lubumbashi. These cases are evidence that NCC is more common than it was previously thought in sub-Saharan Africa. Neurocysticercosis is a pathology-neglected and ignored infection, not only by the population but also by health professionals and health authorities in the DRC, and because of that, it is important to increase the research about NCC in the DRC to assess the prevalence and risk factors for NCC to assess the severity of the phenomenon and to help designing appropriate prevention and control measures. en_US
