Abstract

This article reports a case from Rwanda of muscular cysticercosis presenting as a painful “breast” lump in a young male patient. Sonographic evaluation revealed a hypoechoic mass deep to the breast tissue likely within the pectoralis muscle, rather than the breast. Subsequent excisional biopsy resulted in the diagnosis of cysticercosis.
