Histological observation of a PAS stained section of the cyst. (A) magnification × 100; (B, C) magnification × 200; (D, E, F) magnification × 600.

A: large view of the cerebriform cystic lesion; B, C: higher magnification of two of the various lobes of the cyst including multiples scolices (black arrows); D, E: higher magnification from panel C highlighting tapeworm larvae with hooks (black stars); F: the size of the hooks (double black stars) harboured by the protoscolices was homogeneous, ranging from 100 to 120 μm, that were consistent with Taenia solium cysticerci, i.e. the larval stage of T. solium.
