Ocular cystericosis is the common occurrence among the people of lower socioeconomic status and poor personal hygiene in developing countries. However, spontaneous extrusion of subconjuctival cysticercous cyst is a rare incidence. The present case report describes a spontaneous extrusion of subconjunctival cyst in a 12 year old boy in our clinical set-up. The histopathological examination revealed subconjunctival cysticercous cyst. The extrusion was associated with improvement in clinical sign and symptoms. Cysticercosis should be considered in any case of inflammatory swelling of subconjunctival space especially in people of lower socioeconomic status and poor personal hygiene.
