Four cases of cerebral cysticercosis that presented as brain tumor are reported. The diagnosis of these lesions was possible only after the operation. The clinical manifestations of these patients are discussed. The findings on computed tomography scanning as well as the possibilities for differential diagnosis are presented. All the patients were operated on and the diagnosis confirmed histologically. The difficulties encountered at the operations and the alternative methods for the treatment of these lesions are discussed.
