Computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the abdominal aorta and lower extremities shows arterial atherosclerotic disease with left distal femoral occlusion.
As an incidental finding, there are several well delineated oblong “rice-grain” like calcifications, distributed diffusely through subcutaneous and myofascial tissues, parallel to muscle fibers, compatible with disseminated muscular cysticercosis.
The patient was complaining of lower left limb pain and intermittent claudication, due to left distal femoral artery occlusion, as shown on CTA.
After direct questioning, a history of uninspected pig meat ingestion was found, explaining the multiple soft tissue calcified lesions discovered on CT, compatible with disseminated muscular cysticercosis.
