Hydatid cysts in children. Diagnosis and management



Annales de Pediatrie 36(7): 441-444, 447-449



ISSN/ISBN: 0066-2097

The cases of 1195 children, aged 2 to 15 (mean 5) years old, treated for hydatidosis in a children's hospital in Tunis, Tunisia, from April 1967 to January 1987, are reviewed. The cysts were present in the lungs (643 cases), liver (486), spleen (27) and kidney (18). Before 1978, diagnosis was based mainly on X-ray, clinical presentation and serology; echography was introduced in 1978. With the exception of 7 cases of malignant hydatidosis, all the patients were operated on.
