Albendazole treatment of human cystic echinococcosis



Albendazole treatment of human cystic echinococcosis



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 82(3): 453-459



The effect of albendazole was investigated in 20 patients with single or multiorgan hydatid cyst disease (Echinococcus granulosus). Albendazole was used at a dose of 10 mg/kg daily (in 3 divided doses) in cycles of 28 days for 4 cycles with 15 days between cycles. Follow-up ranged from 12-18 months. Response varied according to the organ involved, the most successful results being with liver and peritoneal cysts.
