Hepatic hydatidosis: diagnostic and therapeutic aspects



Hepatic hydatidosis: diagnostic and therapeutic aspects



Singapore Medical Journal 30(2): 210-212



The case is reported of a 59-year-old Indian woman who presented in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with fever and right hypochondrial pain. Ultrasonography revealed a well encapsulated, multilocular lesion in the right lobe of the liver; computed tomography confirmed this and revealed a curvilinear calcification at the edge of the lesion. Hepatic hydatidosis was diagnosed, and the cyst was removed surgically. Mebendazole at 40 mg/kg/day was given post-operatively for a month.
