Abstract
High prevalence of nodding syndrome (NS) and other types of epileptic seizures have been reported in many onchocerciasis endemic regions in Africa for decades. To improve quality of life of affected patients and families, there is an urgent need to unravel the relationship between these epileptic disorders and onchocerciasis, and to design treatment and prevention strategies.
