Sir,

We have already mentioned in the article that neurocysticercosis (NCC) associated with Parkinsonism has been previously reported and its presence in basal ganglia is not rare. However, the concomitant presence of NCC in basal ganglia associated with Parkinsonism has been reported previously once as a single case report and not series of cases. [1],[3] Moreover, we are not sure whether the previously reported case had anatomically symmetrical NCC. And as we have mentioned in the letter, the location of lesion itself appears insufficient to cause any precise changes as it has been observed that NCC affects brain regions that are distant from location of the cysticerci. [4] Finally, subsequent improvement in one of the case with only cysticidal therapy further supports our stance of NCC presenting as Parkinsonism in our case.
