Cysticercosis is a common healthcare problem, especially in developing countries. Orofacial presentation of the disease is rare. It usually manifest as an asymptomatic nodular swelling that is difficult to differentiate clinically, from other orofacial swellings. Diagnosis of cysticercosis is usually not possible clinically owing to its rarity and asymptomatic presentation in orofacial region. Ultrasonography (USG) is the initial and most reliable diagnostic modality for cysticercosis. This review discusses the various oral manifestations, differentials and investigations for oral cysticercosis.
