Cysticercosis is the most common parasitic disease of the central nervous system. Although seizure is the most common presenting feature, the presentation depends upon the location of the cysts. Orbital cysticercosis presents with limitations of ocular motility in 75% of patients. We describe a case of orbital cysticercosis where the patient presented with isolated unilateral painless progressive ptosis and showed complete resolution after 1 month of treatment with Albendazole.
