Spinal intradural cysticercosis is a rare manifestation of neurocysticercosis that may present as an isolated lesion. We report a case of sacral intradural cysticercosis misdiagnosed as a metastasis through cerebrospinal fluid seeding in a 48-year-old patient who underwent ependymoma surgery 3 months ago. We performed S1-2 laminectomy with the total removal of intradural lesion. The cysticercosis was confirmed histologically. The patient was given albendazole with corticosteroid.
