Cystic and alveolar echinococcosis of the hepatobiliary tract - the role of new imaging techniques for improved diagnosis.

Cystic and alveolar echinococcosis of the hepatobiliary tract - the role of new imaging techniques for improved diagnosis. Med Ultrason. 2020 Mar 01;22(1):77-86 Authors: Dietrich CF, Douira-Khomsi W, Gharbi H, Sharma M, Cui XW, Sparchez Z, Richter J, Kabaalioğlu A, Atkinson NSS, Schreiber-Dietrich D, Yi D Abstract Cystic echinococcosis (CE) or hydatidosis (hydatid cysts) is an infection with a wide spectrum of manifestations, from symptomatic infection to fatal disease. Ultrasound (US) allows screening, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment guidance and follow-up of CE under many circumstances. Hydatid cysts are predominantly observed in the liver. Herewith we present a review to demonstrate established and innovative imaging features of CE of the hepatobiliary tract. PMID: 32096792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The goal of the surgical treatment is total evacuation of the parasite, "sterilization" of the residual cavity and handling of intraoperartive complications. The post-operative course was normal and the patient was discharged to home care ten days after surgery in good general and local condition. KEY WORDS: Abscess, Echinococcus, Infection, Muscle.

CONCLUSION: Our results indicated a high prevalence and continuous transmission of hydatidosis in the provinces of Ifrane and El Hajeb of the Middle Atlas in Morocco. Mass screening campaigns are useful for evaluating the baseline prevalence, evolution of transmission, and risk factors for hydatidosis in endemic areas.

In conclusion, the ovarian location of HD should be considered in any differential diagnosis of a cystic lesion, while it does not exclude synchronous ovarian tumors. These cases reinforce the necessity of better measures of prophylaxis and screening of HD in endemic areas. PMID: 31912083 [PubMed - in process]

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.

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic management of hydatid cysts of the liver can be performed safely and successfully. This technique can be used in patients with unique, small sized, superficially located cysts, and also has the advantages of other abdominal laparoscopic operations.

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.
