Isolated pulmonal echinococcosis

Isolated pulmonal echinococcosis

Chirurg 66(5): 526-529

This is a report of a 81 year old women with a cyst of echinococcus granulosus, that was almost completely taking over the lower lobe of the left lung. This case study shows on one hand the diagnosis of echinococcosis is a part of the differential diagnosis even for an elderly patient. On the other hand we were able to demonstrate, that elderly patients can benefit from the surgical treatment especially since medication has a lot of side effects and a fairly high rate of failures.
