Abstract

An extremely rare case of extradural spinal cysticercosis in an adult male is presented. The patient had evidence of extradural granulation tissue with associated destruction of C4 and C5 pedicles and laminae, causing tetraparesis. Histopathological examination revealed evidence of a degenerated cysticercal cyst with host tissue reaction. The patient made a gradual and marked improvement after decompression. Though rare, cysticercosis as a possible etiology of extradural spinal compression may be considered in endemic area.
