Cysticercosis is an infectious disease caused by ingesting the eggs of the tapeworm. The central nervous system is the most important primary site of infection, and the disease can present with solitary or multiple space-occupying lesions. It is known that muscular cysticercosis is not common, and further studies should be carried out to recognize and diagnose this parasite. Treatment can be clinical or surgical depending on each case. The muscular form has been a casual finding in radiological exams, demonstrating specific characteristics.
The authors report a case with a diagnosis of muscular cysticercosis diagnosed in imaging tests, such as x-ray and CT scan.
