Abstract: Cysticercosis is a human infestation, which is considered the most common cause of seizures worldwide. The subcutaneous lesions can help in the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis. We describe a case of a 45-year-old patient with multiple cutaneous nodules first seen 2 years ago that were increasing in number, and normal neurologic and fundoscopic examination. Neurologic symptoms started 3 months before hospital admission as a mild headache and muscular weakness. The imaging examinations showed a massive central nervous system involvement. Physicians must be aware of the importance of subcutaneous nodule examination for the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis.
