Abstract

A 16-year-old male presented with blurred vision in the right eye after recent travel to Nicaragua. Funduscopic examination revealed subretinal cysticercosis superior to the optic nerve. The cyst was drained and excised using a bimanual, three-dimensional, heads-up-assisted pars plana vitrectomy without complications. Technical maneuvers for cyst extraction along with clinico-pathological correlation are described. Postopera-tively, the patient exhibits no signs of recurrence and has excellent vision.
