Abstract

Neurocysticercosis causes significant morbidity due to neurologic manifestations including seizures. Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is responsible for mortality associated with seizure disorders. This case highlights death from neurocysticercosis and possible SUDEP in a nonendemic country.
