Intramedullary cysticercosis is a rare form of cysticercosis in the central nervous system. A 55-year-old woman was admitted with low back pain, urinary incontinence, paraparesis and sensory deficit. Her MRI showed a well-defined intramedullary cystic lesion at T7 vertebral level with peripheral enhancement on contrast. She underwent a T7-T8 laminectomy and excision of the lesion. Histopathology revealed the lesion to be a cysticercus granuloma. A postoperative course of albendazole was given. The patient showed significant neurological improvement at follow-up.
