Abstract: O presente trabalho teve como objetivos estimar a freqüência das formas músculo-cutánea e visceral da cisticercose em exames anátomo-patológicos e necrópsias realizados em Brasilia, Distrito Federal (estudo retrospectivo) e diagnosticar a cisticercose músculo-cutânea em pacientes residentes na mesma região geográfica (estudo prospectivo). Em 64.911 protocolos de exames anátomo-patológicos, o diagnóstico de cisticercose foi observado em 30 (0,05%), sendo que em 27 (90,0%) os cistos estavam nos tecidos músculo-c… Show more

“…Observação similar foi registrada a partir de exames necroscópicos e de material cirúrgico (biópsias ) efetuados em Brasília (DF) 25 . E possível, no entanto, que estas formas sejam, na verdade, subdiagnosticadas, particularmente na musculatura esquelética, em decorrência da grande massa muscular do corpo e da ausência ou escassez de sintomatologia nestas sedes.…”

“…Because the muscle infection by cisterns exhibits no clinical signs and/ or symptoms and exhibits nonspecific symptomatology, it is unlikely to be identified in a living patient. In the case described here, the diagnosis of cysticercus infection was excluded because the parasitology exam with tests for proglottids was negative and because no notable alterations were observed in the central nervous system magnetic resonance imaging exam 3 .…”

“…In addition, fibro-calcified lesions have also been documented in individuals who are infected by Taenia solium larvae 2 . Cysticercosis muscle infection is unlikely to be identified in a live patient because it exhibits no specific clinical signs and/or symptoms 3 . The presence of extensive calcifications has been reported in the soft tissues of individuals with systemic lupus erythematosus as well as in dermatomyositis and progressive systemic sclerosis.…”

“…The most prevalent clinical form is that with intracranial location. 1 Due to migration flows, cysticercosis transcends borders, invades systems, and reaches new territories. 2 In the imaging service of Clínica Mult Imagem, located in the city of Santos, we are faced with a case of muscular cysticercosis.…”
