We read the recent report on isolated cervical intramedullary cysticercosis with great interest.[1] Mewada and Srivastava reported an interesting case presenting with a neurocysticercal cyst in the cervical spinal cord.[1] They mentioned that this was the first case report of “isolated intramedullary cysticercosis in the cervical region.”[1] In fact, as noted by Kasliwal et al., “isolated spinal involvement by neurocysticercosis, either intramedullary or extramedullary, is uncommon.”[2] Nevertheless, there is an important concern on the conclusion by Mewada and Srivastava.[1] The case should not be addressed as the first case report. At least, there is another previous case of isolated cervical intramedullary cysticercosis published in Neurosurgical Focus in 2002 by Sheehan et al.[3]
