Intraocular cysticercosis results from the larval of the pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. Diagnosis has traditionally been based on fundus dilation examination, B ultrasonography, and optical coherence tomography. We describe herein a rare case of atypical peripheral intraocular cysticercosis in the calcification stage, which was diagnosed with the help of ultrawide fundus fluorescein angiography and intraocular fluid detection. A relatively conservative surgical plan was performed without removing cyst.
