Abstract

We conducted a retrospective study aimed at estimating the seroprevalence of anti-cysticercus antibodies in a Bolivian community settled in Italy. Seroprevalence of 9% was found, testing 495 sera with immunoblot. This study contributes to outline the epidemiological scenario of cysticercosis in immigrants living in Europe.
