ORAL CYSTICERCOSIS - A RARE CASE REPORT

Venkatraman J., Atul Jain, Pregnesh Parmar.

Abstract
A 23 year old male presented with a painless solitary nodular swelling near left lateral border of the tongue of 4 years duration. Fine needle aspiration cytology revealed a benign cystic lesion. Excisional biopsy was done for histopathological examination which revealed larvae of the pork tapeworm (cysticercus). Cysticercus normally dwells in the organs of pigs and infection of human tissues is much more unusual. Oral cysticercosis, especially the involvement of tongue is rare in humans.

Key words: Lingual, Cysticercosis, Oral, Tongue, Taenia, Cellulosae.
