    Neurocysticercosis lesions can occur in the basal ganglia, but most of these are clinically silent. Neurocysticercosis manifesting as movement disorders is extremely uncommon. The authors report a case of neurocysticercosis in an 11-year-old girl presenting with right hemiballismus (a clinical...
