A Glimpse of Hooklet by Cytologists Eye Reflects Cysticercosis: A Case Report

Abstract—Cysticercosis caused by the larval stage of Taenia solium usually manifests as subcutaneous and intramuscular nodules. Clinical presentation may mimic various diseases depending upon site of involvement, thereby making the diagnosis challenging. In such cases significance of Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) cannot be undermined as it is minimally invasive, cost effective outpatient procedure and obviates the need of histopathological examination in majority of the cases. Here we present a case report emphasizing the value of a thorough careful search by the cytologist as mere visualization of a single hooklet can avert excision biopsy, along with review of few reported cases.

Index Terms—Cysticercosis, FNAC, Hooklets, Inflammation
