SUMMARY Purpose : To estimate the lifetime prevalence of neuro- cysticercosis (NCC)–associated epilepsy and the propor- tion of NCC among people with epilepsy in three Burkina Faso villages. Methods : Three villages were selected to represent three types of pig-rearing methods : (1) Batondo, where pigs are left to roam ; (2) Pabre´ , where pigs are mostly tethered or penned ; and (3) Nyonyogo, where the majority of residents are Muslim and few pigs are raised. In Batondo and Nyonyogo, all concessions (a group of several households) were included. Half of the conces- sions in Pabre´ were randomly chosen. All households of selected concessions were included, and one person per household was randomly selected for epilepsy screening and serologic testing for cysticercosis. Self-reported cases of epilepsy .
