Abstract


Cysticercosis is a parasitic disease with varied presentations depending on the involvement of the part of the body.
Disseminated cysticercosis is a rare form of cysticercosis in which the cysticerci spread all through the body. We report a
case of a 4-year-old girl with a non-specific manifestation of low-grade fever, lower limb weakness and associated
meningeal signs.
