Intraretinal granuloma in neurocysticercosis

Published:February 22, 2023DOI:
      A 7-year-old female with neurocysticercosis treated with systemic antihelminthic therapy approximately 1 year prior to presentation presented with visual distortion in the left eye. She was off antihelminthic therapy and was slowly tapering a long oral steroid course. Visual acuity was 20/25 in the left eye. A 2 mm consolidated intraretinal white lesion at 1 o'clock (A, B) was seen on ultra-wide-field imaging. The lesion was hyper-reflective on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) with vitreous cells in the posterior cortical vitreous (C, D).
