Dear Sir,

Ranjan et al. presented an interesting case with “Intramedullary Cysticercosis (ICC) without Neurological Deficit.”[1] Ranjan et al. mentioned that “to best of our knowledge, this is the first case of ICC without neurological involvement.”[1] We agree that the case is rare, but we do not agree with this conclusion, and the problem might be due to a good literature review. We would like to take the note that there are already some publications on ICC without neurological complication. At least, Parmar et al. reported two cases of ICC without neurological complication.[2] It is no doubt that the silent asymptomatic CC is possible and usually missed underdiagnosed.
