Abstract

We report an unusual case of Japanese encephalitis with co-infection of neurocysticercosis in a twelve year old child from a low socio-economic back ground. Child presented altered sensorium and dystonia and was managed aggressively but was left behind with neurological sequelae. The presence of neurocysticercosis infection in this case appears to adversely affect the presentation and outcome.
