Through identification of these high risk areas there may be a better chance of controlling the spread of hydatid
2] We describe a patient with an enlarging mass in popliteal fossa for 15 years and was found to have hydatid
disease is prevalent and widespread in sheep- and cattle-raising countries throughout the world.
In this way, the sheep model with Echinococcus granulosus infection was established, whereas, in our research, adult cestodes with fertilized egg proglottis were fed orally to sheep, and the objective was to imitate natural infection with hydatids
Renal involvement during hydatid
disease is not confined to the glomeruli.
disease is usually an accidentally discovered mass in the abdomen mostly in left hypochondrium and less frequently in the epigastrium.
Human echinococcosis, also known as hydatid
disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus.
The authors concluded that the human hydatid
possibly represented E.
The diagnosis of hydatid
cyst relies on serologic tests and imaging techniques.
For diagnosis of hydatid
lesion, special precaution was taken; it was done in intensive care unit, so as to take action immediately if at all any hypersensitivity reaction occurs.
2) Splenic involvement is rare in patients with hydatid
disease even in endemic countries.
in heart were seen with kidney and spleen hydatids
in one case.
