The authors report 3 cases of intracranial cysticercosis simulating brain tumor. The 2 cases of them had parenchymatous huge cysts in the cerebral hemisphere and the other one had large cyst in the 4th ventricle. In one case of parenchymatous cysticercosis, angiographic finding was less significant though C-T scan revealed huge cystic shadow in the frontal lobe bilaterally and multiple small cystic shadow in occipital lobe and cerebellum. The 4th ventricular cysticercosis was well delineated with Conray ventriculography. All cases were proved as cerebral cysticercosis by operation and the patients were uneventful postoperatively.
