Abstract

We present a case of cystericercosis with cutaneous subcutaneous muscular and cerebral involvement. The patient, a 34 year old man, developed over ten years multiple calcified cystis diffusely on the body. Analysis of a calcified cyst revealed the presence of cysticercus. A therapy with praziquantel proved successful.
