Unilocular hydatid cyst of the kidney in a child: a diagnostic challenge



Unilocular hydatid cyst of the kidney in a child: a diagnostic challenge



Acta Chirurgica Belgica 98(5): 228-230



A case of unilocular renal hydatid cyst (caused by metacestodes of Echinococcus granulosus) is reported in a 10-year-old French girl with no history of travel to a foreign country. The cyst was surgically removed and recovery was uneventful. In children affected by renal echinococcosis, clinical symptoms and physical examination are nonspecific.
