Dear Editor,

The report on spinal cysticercosis is very interesting.[1] Pant et al. noted that this infection is extremely rare.[1] Indeed, this infection is sporadically reported, and the infection can be silent. The differential diagnosis of this infection includes tumor and other “extremely rare” infections such as hydatid cyst. The main pitfall in management is the lack for complete investigation on possible occurrence of cysticercosis cyst at other sites of the body. The spinal cysticercosis is usually a part of disseminated cysticercosis.[2] For the management, in case presenting with cord compression sign, the surgical removal is indicated, and early surgical management is suggested.[2]
