• Cysticercosis is not likely to be the first diagnosis the otologist has in mind when regarding tumors in the head and neck area. The fact that this disease may present a diagnostic and therapeutic problem is illustrated by three cases, appearing in the tongue, buccal mucosa, and midline of the neck, respectively. The local finding of a soft nontender mass, the typical calcifications in the soft tissues visible on roentgenograms, and the histopathological findings are described and illustrated. Attention is drawn to the fact that cerebral cysticercosis, which is a very grave disease, may cause tinnitus, nystagmus, and hearing disturbances.
