Disseminated echinococcosis presenting as chronic headaches in a 55-year-old Middle Eastern woman: review and case report



Disseminated echinococcosis presenting as chronic headaches in a 55-year-old Middle Eastern woman: review and case report



Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice 8(4): 186-190



The case is described of a 55-year-old woman, who used to live on a farm in the United Arab Emirates but had moved to the USA, who presented with chronic headaches of 2 years' duration. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 3-cm cystic lesion, considered most likely to be a tumour. It was removed surgically and found to be a hydatid cyst. Calcified cysts were detected by ultrasonography in the liver.
