    • Abstract:
      Cysticercus, the larval form of Taenia Solium, a tapeworm, can infest various tissues in the human body. Though central nervous system involvement is the most dramatic form of infestation, several other uncommon sites of has been reported in the literature. One such involvement is that of the musculature. The most easily recalled manifestation of myocysticercus is that in the orbit where the patients present with painful proptosis. However, other less common muscular sites of involvement are documented in case reports. To the best of our knowledge, there are no documented cases of pyriformis muscle infestation with cysticercus. We came across two interesting cases, where imaging established the diagnosis of isolated pyriformis cysticercosis. Follow up after one month of anti-elminthic treatment imaging revealed disappearance of the lesions. Keywords: magnetic resonance imaging,myocysticercosis; pyriformis; ultrasound. | PubMed
