Non-epileptic manifestations of neurocysticercosis (NCC) include intellectual deterioration, dementia and parkinsonian behaviour. We report on a child with NCC presenting with abnormal choreiform movement. The case report highlights an uncommon presentation of NCC, and also draws attention to an unusual cause of chorea in children from tropical regions.
