MAKING accurate and timely diagnosis is often challenging when patients with a systemic disease first present with ocular manifestations. The possibility that vasculitis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) can be misdiagnosed as cysticercosis has not been discussed in the literatures.

Key words: systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid syndrome, retinal vasculitis, cysticercosis
