acheilognathi have a segmented body with an arrow-head-shaped or heart-shaped scolex
with bothria (slits) situated dorsoventrally along the scolex
terminating with a weak apical disc 143.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed the presence of a scolex
beneath the retinal pigment epithelium, suggesting neurocysticercosis.
A total of 13 cases were identified as calcified NCC/granuloma, and 24 had evidence of NCC scolex
. Neuroimaging has been considered to be the most popular and established method of establishing NCC.
nihonkaiense tapeworms are ribbon-like and composed of a slender and spatulated scolex
(2.4-2.8-mm long and 1.2-1.5-mm wide) with paired slit-like bothria, neck (14.4-16.8-mm long and 1.16-1.28-mm wide), and strobila comprising numerous proglottids (4) (Figure 1).
According to previous literature, Chang et al,  Creatinine is seen in viable cysts because of the muscle fibres noted in the bladder and scolex
of the cyst.
, it was found that the lesions found in CT scan were mostly in a transitional stage (61.22%), whereas perilesional edema and scolex
within the lesion were noted in 67% and 18% of the cases, respectively.
The cystectomy was successfully performed without rupture and the piece was sent to the parasitology laboratory with evidence of proliferative membrane (macroscopically) and alive scolex
in the intracystic fluid (microscopically) (Figure 4).
Subcutaneous cysts were commonly reported in all parts of the body, mostly single, occasionally multiple in numbers and were surgically excised with scolex
intact under standard protocols.

The biopsy wasperformedagaininJuly, andtheresultinganatomopathological analysis objectivised the hydatidosis on two fragments of necrotic tissue presenting hydatid fragments such as free scolex
, hooks, and fragments of pellucid membrane.
