Abstract

Cysticercosis is a parasitic infection caused by the larval form of pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. Disseminated cysticercosis is an unusual manifestation of cysticercosis which has been reported in endemic areas. Only a few cases of disseminated cysticercosis have been reported worldwide, to date in literature. Herein, we present an incidental finding of disseminated cysticercosis in a middle-aged male who had presented to us with multiple fractures following a road traffic accident.
