Hydatid cyst of the calf presenting as painless mass: A case report

ConclusionHydatid disease should be thought when patients present with mass lesion in any part of the body especially in endemic areas. The most important step in the diagnosis is to exclude the presence of other cysts in other parts of the body.

Conclusion: The serological methods used in the study were found to be important in the early diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis in the endemic areas, since it could be used in sero-epidemiological studies. PMID: 31591872 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions/SignificanceThose observations suggest that over decades socio-ecological changes resulted in a cascade of factors that exacerbated and then interrupted parasite emergence, with probable elimination of peri-domestic transmission ofE.multilocularis in this area, despite the relative proximity of large active transmission foci on the eastern Tibetan Plateau. This study case exemplifies how anthropogenic land use and behavioural changes can modify emergence events and the transmission of endemic zoonotic parasite infections, and subsequently the importance of considering processes over the long-term in a systems a...

Alveolar echinococcosis is a dangerous zoonotic disease caused by larval forms of Echinococcus multilocularis. In its life-cycle, the principal definitive host is the red fox; however, domesticated carnivorous an...

AbstractEchinococcus granulosus is the etiological agent of cystic echinococcosis (CE), also commonly called hydatidosis. This is a zoonotic infection endemic worldwide, including the Mediterranean basin and Morocco. The genetic variability ofEchinococcus granulosus is known to influence development of parasitic cysts in different intermediate hosts, and therefore the epidemiology of infection. Molecular studies have identified nine genotypes ofEchinococcus granulosus, eight of them affect humans, grouped today in four distinct species. In Morocco, molecular studies on CE cysts from animals showed the presence, for the lar...

CONCLUSION: This review describes the development and evaluation of rapid diagnostic tests, while highlighting the need for in depth validations of the tools to determine how well they can perform in endemic areas. PMID: 30946810 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to analyze the demographic, clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic data of CE patients across all provinces in Iran. In this cross-sectional study, the mentioned data were routinely collected by provincial medical universities during the time from March 2016 to March 2017. The provincial population census was used to calculate the prevalence of CE per 1,000,000 populations for all provinces.T test and Chi squared test were used to compare variables between genders. Statistical analysis was done at 95% significant level using STATA 14 software. The overall prevalence of CE was 6.8 cases per 1,000,000 populati...

L, Raoul F Abstract In zoonotic infections, the relationships between animals and humans lead to parasitic disease with severity that ranges from mild symptoms to life-threatening conditions. In cities and their surrounding areas, this statement is truer with the overcrowding of the protagonists of the parasites' life cycle. The present study aims to investigate the distribution of a parasite, Echinococcus multilocularis, which is the causative agent of alveolar echinococcosis, using copro-sampling in historically endemic rural settlements of the eastern part of France and in newly endemic areas including urban p...

Background: Human cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a parasitic zoonotic disease caused by tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus.Due to high rates of echinococcosis in humans and animals, Romania is listed among the first contries worldwilde, being recognized as a highly endemic area.The aim of the present study was to evaluate the epidemiological aspects of this disease in patients hospitalized in surgical clinics in Timisoara, Western Romania.
