Cysticercosis

  1. 1. Cysticercosis • It is an infestation caused by cysticercus which is a larval form of certain taenia species. Among various species the larval form of tape worm, the Taenia solium i.e. cysticercus cellulosae infest human beings either as a definitive or intermediate host. • Consumption of inadequately cooked pork- primary cause. • Fecally contaminated food or water as well as self contamination by reflux- other causes Intraorally, cysticercosis commonly involves lips, cheeks, and tongue . Cysticercosis involving the masseter muscle has also been reported • Most cases present as solitary or multiple, painless, well circumscribed, fluctuant swellings, and often mimic mucoceles. • Microscopically it appears as a fibrous capsule surrounding a cysticercus. The bladder wall appears as lightly eosinophilic wavy membrane with multiple tiny ovoid nuclei in the fibrillary stroma beneath
  2. 2. • When a cyst dies spontaneously or following chemotherapy, there is usually more inflammation. Local eosinophilia, granulation tissue, and a granulomatous reaction follow.
  3. 3. Oral myiasis • Oral myiasis is defined as a condition in which the soft tissues of different parts of the oral cavity are invaded by the parasitic larvae of flies. These larvae commonly known as maggots are of Diptera. • Myiasis is associated with poor oral hygiene. • Usually the female fly infests ova in open wounds, dead tissue or normal body cavities. These eggs hatch and the larvae get their nourishment from the soft tissue. • It is relatively a rare condition but cases have been reported in gingiva, palate and extracted wounds. • The usual presenting symptoms are painful growth with ulceration and itching due to crawling movement of the larvae . • The treatment is aimed at the removal of the larvae from the affected area and flushing the area with normal saline or antiseptics.
