Cysticercosis is the most common parasitic disease of the central nervous system. Although seizure is the most common presenting feature, the presentation depends upon the location of the cysts. The other sites of involvement of cysticerci are soft tissue and eye. Unusual location of the cysts may result in uncommon manifestations. Ocular cysticercosis can involve both the intraocular and extra ocular muscle. Extra ocular muscle cysticercosis is rare. Cysticercosis rarely presents as proptosis. Orbital cysticercosis presents with limitations of ocular motility in 75% of patients. We report a case of disseminated cysticercosis presenting as bilateral proptosis.
