Taeniasis/cysticercosis due to is widely zooendemic in developing countries. It is best known in Mexico, where the parasite and the disease it causes have long been the subject of extensive research. The work of Mexican scientists, especially in the fields of pathology, diagnosis, and treatment, has been published widely in the national and international medical literature. The first attempt to summarize the current state of knowledge in these fields was a volume published in 1982 (Flisser A, Wilms K, Laclette JP, Larralde C, Ridaura C, Beltran R, eds. . New York: Academic Press, 700 pp). The present volume, which represents the contributed papers of the first Mexican national cysticercosis meeting, updates that information through 1986.

The preface highlights the development of knowledge of the disease and its causative agent over the past 30 years in Mexico, from the purely descriptive and clinical to the current state in which experimental and clinical activities cover a very broad span of basic and applied studies.
