Cysticercosis is a common disease in developing countries. Labial lesions produced by this parasitic infestation are rare. The most frequently involved oral locations are the tongue, labial or buccal mucosa, and mouth floor. We present here a case report of a 33-year-old-female patient from Maharashtra, who reported to our department with a swelling in the left lower lip, which was diagnosed as cysticercosis on histpathological examination.
