This most common parasite of man, occurring in the brain as small bean-sized cysts, is the larva of Taenia soleum, which is thought to have been known as long ago as in the Renaissance (Müller 1558). Parasitism in man with spread to the CNS has been exhaustively described by Henneberg (1912, 1936), Mattos-Pimenta and Brandt (1960), and more recently by Trelles and Trelles (1978).
