Ultrasonography showed a maternal right liver lobe hydatid
cyst measuring 14 x 16 cm, and CT scan revealed a large sizable hypodense cystic lesion of about 150 x 150 x 200 mm in AP x TS x CC dimensions, respectively, with multiple septations inside, being mainly in the right lobe, with peripheral calcific wall seen laterally with normal liver parenchyma (Figure 1), occupying almost the whole right lobe of the liver, exerting a mass effect in the form of right kidney, right renal vasculature, and IVC compression with no invasion in addition to medial displacement of the duodenum and midline structures.
Medical data of 171 patients who underwent to hydatid

* To study the various clinical presentations of hydatid

A total of 188 sheep were examined for the prevalence of hydatid

Livers with hydatid
cysts of sheep that were obtained from the slaughterhouse and slaughtered fresh under supervision of a veterinary doctor were used in the study.
(12, 15-17, 19) Nevertheless, the long exposure time of their application is not suitable for hydatid

The sensitivity of serological tests for pulmonary hydatid
cysts is lower than that in the liver [2, 3].
Here, we present the results of a long-term follow-up of 22 patients with a hydatid
cyst located in the spleen after percutaneous treatment using the Ormeci technique and also review the literature.
