Only a few cases of intraventricular hydatid cysts have been described. The Camalote or waterlily sign is described when there is detachment of the endocyst membrane, resulting in a floating appearance like a waterlily. This sign has been described most commonly in hepatic cysts. Here, we describe the camalote sign in an iatrogenically ruptured intraventricular hydatid cyst. Rupture of an intraventricular hydatid cyst poses the threat of widespread dissemination and is described in our case.

Aspergilloma, also known as mycetoma or fungus ball, is characterized by a round or oval mass with soft-tissue attenuation within a preexisting lung cavity. The typical computed tomography (CT) aspect of an aspergilloma is a mass separated from the wall of the cavity by an airspace of variable size and shape, resulting in the air crescent sign, also known as the meniscus sign. This CT feature is non-specific and can be simulated by several other entities that result in intracavitary masses. This review describes the main clinical and imaging aspects of the infectious and non-infectious diseases that may present with fungus-ball appearance, including pulmonary hydatid cyst, Rasmussen aneurysm, pulmonary gangrene, intracavitary clot, textiloma, lung cancer, metastasis, and teratoma, focusing on the differential diagnosis...

Multiple hydatid cysts in the liver are a very rare occurrence in childhood. We present a similar case in a nine-year-old girl, a resident in a rural community, who presented with two hydatid cysts in her liver. The cysts were operated upon by a pediatric surgeon. The laboratory findings of this patient showed peripheral blood eosinophilia, elevated white blood cells, and liver enzymes. The serology was positive. The ultrasonography showed cystic masses in the liver, and the diagnosis of hydatid cysts was eventually confirmed by computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen...

Objective: Thoracoscopic treatment of pulmonary hydatid cyst (PHC) has been considered to be a good treatment option in both children and adults for nearly 25 years. However, there have been very few pediatric studies published during this period. Our goal is to review our results and evaluate the efficiency of thorascopy in pediatric patients. Materials and Methods: The medical records of patients with PHC who were surgically treated between 2005 and 2015 were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Intrahepatic biliary cystadenomas are rare hepatic neoplasms, which are usually cystic. These tumors are often misdiagnosed as simple liver cysts and hydatid cysts clinically and radiologically owing to nonspecific clinical and radiologic features. These tumors require complete resection, as recurrence and malignant transformation can occur following incomplete excision. It is essential that these tumors be diagnosed accurately so that they can be adequately excised. METHODS: Clinical and radiological features of six cases of biliary cystadenoma are described...

BACKGROUND: Cystic echinococcosis is common in many countries and involves the liver in 75% of cases. The current belief is that all incidentally discovered asymptomatic liver hydatids must be subjected to some types of interventional treatments pre-emptively for fear of some presumably impending complications. We conducted this study to assess the prognosis of patients with liver hydatids without any surgical interventions. Furthermore, we tried to predict the outcome of the cyst using two radiological signs...

Cystic echinoccoccosis is a zoonotic and prevalent disease which causes health problems and economic looses worldwide. The biochemical components of hydatid cyst fluid (HCF) have important role in metabolism and growth of unilocular hydatid cyst. The aim of the current study was to determine HCF level of enzymes and electrolytes profiles in naturally infected Iranian domestic ruminants. The livers and lungs infected with hydatid cysts were collected and HCF was aspirated from a total of 100 cysts obtained from livers (50 cysts) and lungs (50 cysts) of slaughtered domestic ruminants...

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a medically important parasite-caused human disease. Humans may acquire the infection accidentally by ingestion of E. granulosus eggs. The parasite has a broad range of hosts and genotypes, which may affect its aetiological and biological characteristics. The present study aimed to determine the genetic characteristics of human isolates of E. granulosus in Isfahan, Iran. In this cross-sectional study, 50 surgically removed hydatid cysts were collected from hospitalized patients in Al-Zahra Hospital, Isfahan, Iran, over a period of 2 years (2015-2017)...

The information on mortality from echinococcosis is important not only for a better understanding of the severity of the disease, but also for evaluating the effectiveness of public health interventions. The aim of this research was to study the causes of mortality from echinococcosis. We have collected and analyzed the materials of 1,470 patients in 10 age - groups in the Republic of Armenia (from 2000 to 2016). To find out the causes of mortality from echinococcosis, we have analyzed the medical histories and protocols of postmortem examinations of 19 deaths from echinococcosis and 17 deaths due to other indirect causes not associated with the parasite...

Echinococcosis in humans occurs as a result of infection by the larval stages of taenid cestodes of the genus Echinococcus. Most of the intracranial hydatids develop in brain parenchyma. Hydatid cyst within the cerebral ventricle is quite unusual. Literature review showed few case reports of childhood as well as adult intraventricular hydatid cysts. None of these cases presented for the first time with features of ruptured intraventricular cyst. This is a very rare presentation of a common disease. The possibility of infestation with E...

Human cystic echinococcosis is a widespread, chronic, endemic, helminthic zoonosis caused by larval tapeworms of the species Echinococcus granulosus. At present, there is no rational and effective therapy for patients with echinococcosis. The present study evaluated whether the combination of alkaloids from Sophora moorcroftiana seeds (SMSa2) and Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) was effective in the treatment of experimental echinococcosis. After 20 weeks of secondary infection with protoscoleces, mice were randomly allocated to five groups and treated for 6 weeks by daily intragastric administration of albendazole (ABZ, 100 mg/kg), SMSa2 (100 mg/kg), BCG (abdominal subcutaneous injection at 5 × 106 CFU), SMSa2 + BCG (100 mg/kg SMSa2 and 5 × 106 CFU BCG) or normal saline (untreated group), respectively...

Hydatid disease is the most common mediterranean parasitic infection; it commonly affects the liver and lungs and rarely involves multiple organs. A 14-year-old girl presented with a 1-year history of dyspnoea and fatigue. She was found to have pulmonary hypertension owing to hydatid cysts in the right ventricle and both pulmonary arteries. After administration of albendazole she underwent pulmonary endarterectomy and a calcified hydatid cyst was removed from the right ventricle. She made a complete recovery and remained on albendazole for 6 months...

Hydatid disease of the parotid gland is a very rare entity and may be easily overlooked in the diagnosis of parotid masses. Although Turkey remains an endemic area for echinococcosis, involvement of the parotid gland is extremely rare. A 26-year-old man presented with primary parotid gland mass without any other organ involvement. During the first surgery, the cyst was perforated accidentally and in a short time recurrence was occurred. Maximum attention was given for the second surgery for total removal without damaging the cyst with medical treatment...
