Abstract

BACKGROUND:

A study was carried out to investigate the various posterior segment presentations of intraocular cysticercosis and their management.

METHODS:

A retrospective study of five consecutive cases of intraocular cysticercosis seen at our institute was done. Pars plana vitreous surgery for removal of intact cysts was done in all cases.

RESULTS:

Complete removal of the intact cyst through the pars plana route was achieved in all cases. Postoperative periods were uneventful, with visual recovery to 6/9 or better in all cases.

CONCLUSIONS:

Complete surgical removal of the intact cyst can result in good functional recovery in eyes with intraocular cysticercosis.
