    Abstract

    A mid-abdominal mass was discovered during routine physical examination of a rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta). Further diagnostics and exploratory laparotomy were performed, revealing a fluid-filled cyst attached to the caudal free margin of the greater omentum. Formation and pulsatile movement of white-colored circumferential bands within the wall of the cyst were observed during surgery. The cyst was removed and later was dissected. The discovery of a single invaginated scolex identified the cyst as a cysticercus. The location and characteristics of the cysticercus were consistent with the larval form of Taenia hydatigena.
