Cysticercosis is a disease that occurs when humans are infected with Taenia solium larvae. The parasitic illness cysticercosis, which is common in impoverished nations, hardly ever affects the mouth. Oral cysticercosis is rare that might be challenging to diagnose clinically. This rare case report documents an oral cysticercosis case in a 38-year-old male patient who had an asymptomatic lesion in the buccal mucosa of his lower lip. A T. solium larva was identified on histopathological examination in a cystic cavity after an excisional biopsy.
