In this study, we present a case of disseminated cysticercosis involving the brain, orbit, myocardium, muscle, subcutaneous tissues, pancreas, and spleen. Imaging studies are described with emphasis on pancreatic and splenic involvement which is a rare manifestation of a rather common disease and has been radiologically demonstrated only once previously. Although the involvement of the pancreas by parasites leading to pancreatitis has been described previously, in our case there was no clinical or biochemical evidence of pancreatitis due to infection by cysticerci.
