Vitreo-Retina, Trauma and Uvea Services, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Ocular cysticercosis could involve subconjunctival space, anterior chamber, extraocular muscle, subretinal space, or vitreous. The presence of intraocular live cyst is a potential threat to visual acuity. The removal of the cyst in-toto is thus of importance to prevent inflammatory reaction and ocular damage. Read More

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2017 12;2017:5401850. Epub 2017 Apr 12.

Department of Medicine and Surgery, University of Salerno, Salerno, Italy.

Migration of intraocular silicone oil, used in the treatment of complicated retinal detachment, has been rarely described, but when it happens it can arise with a differential diagnosis with scleral buckling extrusion, tumor, dermoid, ocular cysticercosis, and abscess. The presence of silicone oil in the eye gives very ugly echographic pictures, but these kinds of pictures can be very useful in making a differential diagnosis in the above-mentioned cases. A 39-year-old white female complained of the presence of conjunctival hyperemia and tearing in the right eye (RE); her visual acuity was hand motion, and the intraocular pressure was 14 mmHg.

Ocular cysticercosis is a serious condition with a potential for complete vision loss if left untreated. Intravitreal cysticercosis is the most common ocular form of cysticercosis and is associated with retinal detachment, retinal traction, subretinal scarring and vitritis. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report of the occurrence of a live intravitreal cysticercosis with a full thickness macular hole (FTMH) in the literature. Read More

Cysticercosis is a zoonotic disease most commonly affecting brain, eye and muscles, causing significant morbidity. Transmitted by faeco-oral route, this disease was endemic in many developing countries; it is now seen worldwide due to globalisation. Manifestations are produced by the mass effect of the parasite and by the immune response mounted by the host on the parasite. Read More

Antiepileptic drugs for seizure control in people with neurocysticercosis.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2015 Oct 12(10):CD009027. Epub 2015 Oct 12.

Department of Pediatrics, Christian Medical College, Brown Road, Ludhiana, Punjab, India, 141008.

Background: Neurocysticercosis is the most common parasitic infection of the brain. Epilepsy is the commonest clinical presentation, though it may also present with headache, symptoms of raised intracranial tension, hydrocephalus and ocular symptoms depending upon the localisation of the parasitic cysts. Anthelmintic drugs, anti-oedema drugs, such as steroids and antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) form the mainstay of treatment. Read More

A new surgical "noose" technique for excision of pediatric ocular adnexal and anterior orbital cysts.

J AAPOS 2015 Aug 31;19(4):372-5. Epub 2015 Jul 31.

Department of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus, Aravind Eye Hospital, Anna Nagar, Madurai.

We describe a "noose technique" that facilitates complete surgical excision of all forms of pediatric adnexal and anterior orbital extraocular cysts, including conjunctival retention cysts, parasitic cysts involving the conjunctiva, Tenon's capsule, or rectus muscle, superficial cysts, and deep dermoid cysts. The technique provides good exposure and facilitates handling of tissues, maintains surgical planes, minimizes bleeding, decreases injury to collateral tissues, reduces surgical time, allows for utilization of less skilled assistants, and ensures complete excision in most cases. The noose technique is a versatile procedure that can be applied to extraocular cysts of any location or size both in children and adults. Read More

S.B. Dr. Sohan Singh Eye Hospital, Katra Sher Singh, Chowk Farid, Amritsar, Punjab 143001, India.

Parasites enter the eye through hematogenous spread. The interaction with host immune system may result in its destruction but not without collateral damage to the vital retinal structures. Currently, the accepted treatment for ocular parasitosis is surgical removal or direct laser photocoagulation. Read More

Malays J Med Sci 2015 Mar-Apr;22(2):65-8

Department of Pediatrics, K. J. Somaiya Medical College, Hospital and Research Centre, Sion (E), Mumbai - 400 022, Maharashtra, India.

Human cysticercosis is caused by Cysticercus cellulosae, larvae of a tapeworm, Taenia solium. Cysticercosis can involve any tissue in the body; the most common affected sites are central nervous system, subcutaneous tissue, eyes, and muscles. A few cases of isolated intramuscular cysticercosis without any other tissue involvement have been reported in pediatric population. Read More

Ocular cysticercosis with vitreous hemorrhage: a rare complication of a common disease.

Springerplus 2015 7;4:217. Epub 2015 May 7.

Department of Neurology, Sawai Man Singh Medical College, Jaipur, Rajasthan India.

Introduction: Cysticercosis, a helminthic infestation caused by Taenia solium, can produce central nervous system, muscles, visceral, subcutaneous tissues and skin manifestations. Ophthalmological involvement can affect eyelids, conjunctiva, anterior chamber, uvea, vitreous, retina, extraocular muscles and optic nerve. Simultaneous co-occurrence of intracranial and intraocular cysticercosis is a common presentation in clinical practice. Read More

Objective assessment of symptomatic vitreous floaters using optical coherence tomography: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2015 Mar 8;15:22. Epub 2015 Mar 8.

Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background: Vitrectomy for symptomatic vitreous floaters carries significant risks. Justification of surgery is difficult, particularly in healthy eyes with normal visual acuity and without a posterior vitreous detachment. This is the first reported case of optical coherence tomography being utilized to objectively assess the impact of a vitreous opacity on the macula. Read More

The present situation and towards the prevention and control of neurocysticercosis on the tropical island, Bali, Indonesia.

Parasit Vectors 2015 Mar 7;8:148. Epub 2015 Mar 7.

Department of Parasitology, Asahikawa Medical University, Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan.

Neurocysticercosis (NCC), which is caused by accidental ingestion of eggs of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium, was common in Bali, Indonesia until the early 1990s. However, improved education on hygiene and sanitation, a move to keeping pigs indoors, and improvement of economic and living conditions have substantially reduced the occurrence of NCC in Bali. Since 2011, T. Read More

Systemic lupus erythematosus and antiphospholipid syndrome related retinal vasculitis mimicking ocular cysticercosis: a case report.

Chin Med Sci J 2015 Mar;30(1):59-62

Department of Ophthalmology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, Beijing 100730, China.

Making accurate and timely diagnosis is often challenging when patients with a systemic disease first present with ocular manifestations. The possibility that vasculitis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) can be misdiagnosed as cysticercosis has not been discussed in the literatures.

Neurocysticercosis, the most common parasitic infection of the nervous system, is known to affect the brain, eyes, muscular tissues and subcutaneous tissues. However, it is very rare for patients with ocular cysts to have concomitant cerebral cysts. Also, the dominant clinical manifestation of patients with cerebral cysts is either seizures or headache.

Lacrimal sac cysticercosis: a rare site for manifestation.

Authors:
Amita Raoot

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2014 13;2014:961815. Epub 2014 Nov 13.

University College of Medical Sciences, Delhi University, India.

Cysticercosis, a parasitic tissue infestation caused by larval cysts (cysticercus cellulosae) of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium, most commonly affects the central nervous system, subcutaneous tissue, skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and the eye. Ocular adnexal infestation in cysticercosis can involve various sites within the eye like vitreous humor, subretinal tissue, extraocular muscle, and lacrimal gland. In this case report, a lump slightly below and medial to inner corner of eye, surgically removed from a 21-year-old male patient, was diagnosed as case of lacrimal sac cysticercosis on histopathological examination.
