Urticarial vasculitis is most often idiopathic, but may occur in association with autoimmune disease, malignancy, drugs, or infection. Parasitic infection is a rare cause of urticarial vasculitis. We report a case of urticarial vasculitis that resolved after the diagnosis and treatment of neurocysticercosis.
