Intra-peritoneal rupture of large hydatid cyst of the liver containing innumerable daughter cysts after blunt abdominal trauma

ConclusionPrevention of hydatid disease is the most effective way to control the disease, the cyst may reach a very large size and be asymptomatic. Intraperitoneal rupture may occur as a result of blunt abdominal trauma which could be trivial.

Conclusion: Even though considerable progress has been made, uncertainties remain in the diagnosis and treatment ofEchinococcosis. Hence, standardized diagnostic and treatment procedures should be established with well-designed studies.Keywords:Echinococcosis, hydatid cyst, diagnosis, treatment.

Abstract A boxer dog was evaluated because of lethargy, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Ultrasonography revealed multiple cystic structures in the abdomen. Exploratory laparotomy revealed 3 well-encapsulated hepatic masses and abdominal effusion with suppurative inflammation. Collectively, these findings suggested the hepatic masses were most likely abscesses. However, histologic examination of the hepatic masses revealed multi-cystic structures, consistent with alveolar echinococcosis. The diagnosis was confirmed by DNA sequencing. The dog was treated with daily albendazole, but within a few weeks exhibited adverse...

Conclusions For lytic manifestations of the vertebral column, hydatid cysts should be considered a differential diagnosis in addition to malignant metastasis, tuberculosis, and osteomyelitis. Thorough surgical resection and strict follow-up are necessary. [...] Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

Abstract Human echinococcosis is a rare zoonotic infection caused by larvae of the tapeworm species Echinococcus. The most relevant two species to humans are Echinococcus multilocularis and the dog tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. The latter causes cystic echinococcosis, which plays a dominant role in thoracic surgery due to its pulmonal involvement. The parasite develops characteristic hydatic cysts mostly in liver and lung. In 2016 a rise in cases of cystic echinococcosis in Germany was recorded, a probable cause could have been the refugee wave. The infection and advanced stages of the disease does not always ...

Abstract Cystic echinococcosis (CE), also known as hydatid cyst, is a zoonosis caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. It is a common health problem in many countries. This condition predominantly affects the liver and the lungs, and the spleen to a less extent (splenic hydatid cyst, SHD). Indeed, it is estimated that SHD occurs in less than 2% of abdominal CE and 0.5-8% of CE cases. Here, we present a case of a 44-year-old Chinese woman with primary giant SHD who experienced pain in the left hypochondrium for 10 days. A combination of abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) were used for pr...

Abstract Hydatidosis is an important zoonotic parasite disease in several herbivorous mammals. Human cystic echinococcosis (CE) caused by infection with larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus has been frequently reported from different organs. Here, we report the first case of a urinary echinococcosis in Iran with a pain in the lower left abdominal quadrant and severe frequent urination (pollakiuria). We detected a cyst 120 × 15 mm dimensions with heterogeneous mass contain fluid in the back of the urinary bladder neck between the umbilical region and external urethral sphincter. The patient was candidate f...

We presented a rare case of cystic echinococcosis involving left ventricle in a child, and surgery is an alternative and effective therapy for this lesion due to the cyst rupture or leakage that can result in anaphylaxis. The typical imaging features of the cardiac echinococcosis on cardiac magnetic resonance are presented. Patient prognosis relies on proper treatment of all lesions.

AbstractThe pericardium could be involved in a variety of clinical disorders. The imaging findings are not specific for an individual pathology in most of the cases; however, patient ’s clinical history may guide radiologist to a definitive diagnosis. Congenital absence of the pericardium could be recognized with the imaging appearance of interposed lung tissue between the main pulmonary artery and aorta. Pericardial effusion is a non-specific condition that may occur due to i nflammatory, infectious, and neoplastic disorders. Cardiac tamponade may occur in case of massive or rapid accumulation of fluid in the perica...

A 49-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Department with nonmassive hemoptysis. She also complained of a 2-day history of generalized weakness, shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain, and productive cough. She reported a previous history of liver hydatid disease that was being treated with albendazole. Upon admission, vital signs were as follows: blood pressure 135/85  mm Hg, respiratory rate 24 breaths/min, pulse rate 118 beats/min, and SpO2 89% in room air. Bloody stained sputum and a low-grade fever were also noted.
