Hydatidosis of the complete humerus. Treated with radical resection and endoprosthesis. Case report

ConclusionTotal humerus hydatidosis is infrequent, and there is scarce information about its treatment. The local resection plus graft and osteosynthesis conserving the bone has shown complications and recurrences. For healing, a radical procedure is necessary. Although functional results may be limited.

Bahjat, Ahamd Mohammad Sharif Tahir, Ayad Ahmad MohammedAbstractHydatid cyst of the heart is very rare, the left ventricle is the commonest site of myocardial involvement due to dominant left coronary vessels and thicker wall. Isolated cardiac involvement is extremely rare. Patients may be quite asymptomatic but the cyst may cause palpitation, dyspnea, chest pain, or when ruptured in to the cardiac or pericardial cavities may cause emergency presentations like anaphylactic reactions, sudden collapse due to pericardial...

This study aims to elucidate the presentation, treatment and outcomes of the disease in Pakistan. A review of charts of 225 patients (median age = 42.3 years) with CE admitted at Aga Khan Hospital, Karachi during 2007-2017, was carried out. Abdominal pain was present in 34.7% followed by fever in 26.2%. There were 142 (63.1%) cases of hepatic cysts and 55 (24.4%) of pulmonary hydatid cysts. Combined surgical and medical therapy was given to 130 (57.8%) patients. Surgery only was performed in 23 (10.2%) patients, medical therapy only was given to 35 (15.6%) patients, and puncture, aspiration, injection and rea...

ConclusionHydatid cyst is one of the differential diagnoses of any cystic lesion in patients from an endemic areas of hydatid disease. Hydatid cysts of the female pelvic organs may be diagnosed initially as ovarian cyst, ovarian tumor, or pelvic infection. Most of the cases are diagnosed during surgery which is the main treatment modality; anthelminthic medications may help to decrease the recurrence rate.

AbstractHydatid disease is a worldwide zoonosis endemic in many countries. Liver echinococcosis accounts for 60 –75% of cases and may be responsible for a wide spectrum of complications in about one third of patients. Some of these complications are potentially life-threatening and require prompt diagnosis and urgent intervention. In this article, we present our experience with common and uncommon complicat ions of hepatic hydatid cysts which include rupture, bacterial superinfection, and mass effect-related complications. Specifically, the aim of this review is to provide key imaging features and diagnostic clues to...

This study presents data from the Kazakhstan Scientific and Practical Center for Sanitary and Epidemiological Evaluation and Monitoring on CE patients treated surgically, with a diagnosis confirmed by pathology. Evaluation of data from 2007 to 2016 indicated that the CE incidence rate decreased during this time period in most areas of Kazakhstan (country-level incidence rate of 5.6 versus 4.7 cases/100,000 population in 2007 and 2016, respectively). Cystic echinococcosis had a higher incidence in southern Kazakhstan, with an incidence rate between 7.0 and 10.5 cases per 100,000 population, whereas northern regions had rate...

Alveolar echinococcosis caused by Echinococcus multilocularis is an important zoonotic disease. In the infected mice, emu-miR-4989-3p is present in sera, but its role remains unknown. Using high-throughput sequencing and qPCR, emu-miR-4989-3p was herein confirmed to be encapsulated into E. multilocularis extracellular vesicles. In the transfected macrophages, emu-miR-4989-3p was demonstrated to significantly inhibit NO production compared to the control (p

This study provides baseline information for better understanding the status of parasitic infections in Palestine and compares their epidemiology between the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Appropriate control measures and health education directed to the public about preventive measures should be considered to raise awareness about parasitic infections to lower their incidences and burden in Palestine.

AbstractLiver resection is the safest intervention for alveolar echinococcosis (AE), because the only potentially curative treatment is complete removal of the lesion. In combination with medical anthelmintic treatment, a safe distance of at least 1  mm is permissible in this procedure. Even when liver resection does not cure AE, good long-term survival outcomes can be achieved if most of the lesion has been removed and the disease is controlled with lifelong benzimidazole treatment. If the residual lesion is comparatively small and does not c ontain a closed space that may adhere to the surrounding tissue and form an...
