Rationale: Rationale:Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a rare but highly malignant form of echinococcosis caused by Echinococcus multilocularis. There have been very few reports on multiple-organ AE, especially AE in bones. Here we report 3 rare cases of disseminated multiple-organ AE from western China and its neighboring areas. Patient concerns: Patient concerns:Patient 1 had back and left hip pain, headache, and weakness in left lower limb, often with minor epilepsy and fluctuation of blood pressure.

In this report, we present an 8-year-old female patient admitted with cough, fever, and sputum persisting since 2 weeks; her chest radiography and computed tomography (CT) findings initially indicated Tbc, but the follow-up surgery led to a diagnosis of ruptured lung CE. We want to emphasize that in children belonging to places where livestock is common, if respiratory symptoms are observed, CE and tuberculosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis, and the final diagnosis should be supported by other microbiological-serological tests.
