Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: To report 2 children with medial rectus cysticercosis presenting as proptosis of eyeball. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: In orbital cysticercosis, extraocular muscle cysticercosis is the most common type. Two children, a 12-year-old girl and an 8 year-old boy, presented with proptosis and pain in the left eye. Both were diagnosed with medial rectus cysticercosis based on computed tomographic scan and serologic report and treated with oral albendazole and prednisolone without any residual ocular motility restriction. CONCLUSIONS: We report 2 cases of medial rectus muscle enlargement caused by cysticercosis; describe its clinical importance, diagnosis, and treatment; and present a review of the literature.
