 Orbital cysticercosis is a less common presentation of cysticercal infestation. Diagnosis is primarily by CT and MRI investigations. High resolution ultrasound is rarely used in the diagnosis. Patients can be managed conservatively with antihelminths and steroids. We present the case of a 10 years old girl presenting with proptosis of left eye and was diagnosed as extraocular orbital cysticercosis involving the inferior rectus muscle   on high-resolution ultrasound and managed conservatively with antihelminths.
