Neurocysticercosis is one of the common parasitic diseases of central nervous system. We report here a case of histopathologically confirmed case of cysticercus cellulosae presenting as a solitary cyst in the brain stem of a thirty-three year old female patient. This is being reported because of the uncommon anatomical location of the lesion and secondly magnetic resonance imaging features did not contribute to the preoperative diagnosis.
