OMV018F1: (a) USG image. Arrow showing an anechoic lesion with the scolex inside. (b) T2-weighted MR image. Arrow showing a hyperintense lesion in the bucco-masseteric region.

Mentions: A 32-year-old male presented to us with swelling in the right cheek of 2 weeks duration. He first consulted at a primary health centre where a malignant lesion of oral cavity was suspected. He was a tobacco chewer for the last 3 years. On examination, there was an oval, firm swelling around 2.5 × 2 cm in size, 2 cm above and medial to right angle of mandible. Examination of the oral cavity was normal. An ultrasonography of the cheek was performed which revealed anechoic cystic swelling in the bucco-masseteric region with perilesional edema. A hyperechoic intralesional structure consistent with the scolex was identified consistent with a cysticercus (Fig. 1A). MRI of the face and neck was performed. T2-weighted image revealed a hyperintense cystic lesion with perilesional oedema in the bucco-masseteric region (Fig. 1B). FNAC of the lesion was performed and it revealed chronic inflammatory infiltrate. No evidence of malignancy was seen.Figure 1:
