Abstract

Spinal cysticercosis is an uncommon manifestation of neurocysticercosis (NCC). We present a case of isolated lumbar intradural-extramedullary NCC. The patient was treated successfully with the surgical removal of the cyst. Spinal NCC should be considered in the differential diagnosis in high-risk populations with new symptoms suggestive of a spinal mass lesion.
