Figure 1: (a and b) Preoperative clinical photographs: right-sided ptosis and restricted abduction of the right eye. (c and d) Magnetic resonance sagittal and axial preoperative images: cysticercal cyst in the superior rectus muscle present at the orbital apex with optic nerve compression. (e) Postoperative T2-weighted axial magnetic resonance: excision of the cyst. (f) Histopathology (H and E, ×2): the larval form of cysticercus with duct-like invaginations lined by double-layered eosinophilic membrane and body wall showing myxoid matrix and calcareous bodies. (g and h) Postoperative clinical images: no ptosis and improvement in extraocular muscle palsy
