disease represents the larval form of the canine intestinal tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus, (4) which infects humans as accidental intermediate hosts.
Abdominal sonography was suggestive of 8.9 cm x 8.5 cm x 7 cm splenic hydatid
(9) USG with serological tests increased the predictive value and can decrease the need of CT in rural areas, apart from being cost effective, as was confirmed by Priego P et al (9,15) Chest X ray was used for lung hydatids
* To study the various clinical presentations of hydatid
disease of liver.
Renal involvement during hydatid
disease is not confined to the glomeruli.
spleen constitutes 0.5-4 percent of all cases of echinococcosis (1).
cysts (HC) occur most frequently in the liver (65%) and lung (20%).
cysts were obtained from abattoirs, and fluid was aspirated and placed in a beaker at 4[degrees]C to which 0.5 M phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride (Sigma, St.
Primary intramuscular hydatid
is extremely uncommon and rare.PH4!
(6) With time, the treatment of abdominal hydatid
disease is undergoing revolutionary changes and the era of open surgery with its associated large incision, post-operative complications and prolonged hospital stay is now being challenged by minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
The diagnosis of hydatid
cyst relies on serologic tests and imaging techniques.
