We report an unusual presentation of ocular cysticercosis in a 30 year old female who presented with diplopia and hypertropia of left eye for 1 month, wherein cysticercus cellulosae cyst was found within the mass of the left inferior rectus muscle. After 7 days of presentation, the diplopia and corresponding hypertropia recovered on its own as the cysticercus migrated spontaneously to the subcutaneous tissue of the lower eyelid. It becomes important to report this case because of the rarity of the migration of cysticerci from the muscle in orbit to the subcutaneous tissue in the eye, which in itself is an unusual presentation.
