Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To highlight the sonographic appearances of cysticercosis involving uncommon muscular sites.

METHODS:

Two patients with nodular swelling involving the tongue and maxillary region were examined with high-resolution sonography.

RESULTS:

Sonographic examination revealed an anechoic area with a small calcified scolex suggesting cysticercus infection.

CONCLUSIONS:

High-resolution sonography is a noninvasive and nonionizing imaging modality that plays an important role in establishing the diagnosis of cysticercosis.
