BACKGROUND: Cervids used to be considered the only animal intermediate hosts of the G10 genotype of Echinococcus canadensis. Yaks are often herded in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China, where echinococcosis remains prevalent. However, no E. canadensis G10 cases have been recorded in yaks until now. The aim of our study was to identify causative agents of echinococcosis in yaks in this region. METHODS: Total genomic DNA was extracted from the germinal layer of one hydatid using a Blood and Tissue Kit...

Hydatid cyst (echinococcosis) is an endemic parasitic disease, usually encountered in those dealing with agriculture and livestock. The most frequently affected organs are the liver and the lungs. The disease is very rarely encountered in soft tissues. Diagnosing a soft-tissue hydatid cyst may be challenging unless the mass possesses the characteristic features of a hydatid cyst. Soft-tissue hydatid cysts may be treated percutaneously, just like those encountered in the liver. In this case report, we present the radiological findings and modified percutaneous aspiration-injection-reaspiration (PAIR) treatment of a hydatid cyst located in the posterior aspect of the thigh...

Cardiac myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors and are typically attached to the interatrial septum. Left ventricular myxomas are exceedingly rare and presentation in children is all the more uncommon. We report a case of left ventricular myxoma with very atypical cystic appearance raising an initial suspicion of a hydatid cyst. Subsequently, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging was done, which ruled out the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. Complete surgical excision was done through transaortic and transmitral route...

RATIONALE: Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a parasitic zoonosis caused by echinococcus larvae. Manifestations of the disease include a severe damage to the liver and lung. Damages to the mesentery, omentum, spleen, brain, heart, bone, thyroid, kidney, and uterus are rarely observed. Moreover, primary ovarian and retroperitoneal hydatid disease is extremely rare, and is easily ignored or misdiagnosed. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present a case of CE in a 34-year-old female who presented with an adnexal mass detected by B-ultrasound...

Primitive hydatid disease of diaphragm is very rare. The preoperative diagnosis of this hydatid location represents a challenge for the radiologist. We reported a case of primitive hydatid cyst of the diaphragm not associated with other hydatid localizations which was diagnosed preoperatively. A 70 year-old woman with no previous medical history, complained of abdominal pain in the right upper quadrant for 7 months. The physical exam and the laboratory tests were unremarkable. Abdominal ultrasound showed multiloculated cystic lesion which appeared to be located in the hepatic dome suggestive of hydatid cyst of the liver...

Hydatid disease is helminthic infection caused by tape worm echinococcus granulosis. It commonly involves liver (65-75%) and the lungs (25 to 30%). Involvement of bones and skeletal muscle is very rare, i.e. 3 to 5%. This is the report of a 21-year girl, city resident, presented with mass involving left proximal thigh. The mass was painless and had gradually increased in size over three years. MRI revealed solid cum cystic lesion in vastus medialis muscle. Tru-Cut needle biopsy of the lesion revealed necrotic material...

Cystic echinococcosis caused by the larval stages of Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato s.l is endemic in Turkey with a high public health impact particularly in rural areas. The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic variation and population structure of E. granulosus s.s using metacestode isolates removed from surgically confirmed patients originating from several regions in Turkey and to investigate the occurrence of autochthonous transmission. Using DNA extracted from a total of 46 human-derived CE isolates, we successfully analysed an 827-bp fragment within the cox1 mitochondrial gene and confirmed the causative agent of human cystic echinococcosis in patients included in this study to be Echinococcus granulosus s...

Cystic echinococcosis (CE)/hydatid cyst is one of the most important helminthic diseases in the world. The treatment of hydatid cyst ranges from surgical intervention to chemotherapy, although the efficacy of chemotherapy is still unclear. Postoperative complication which results from the spillage of cysts during surgical operation is one of the most important concerns in surgical treatment of hydatid cyst. The aim of the current study was to solidify the hydatid cyst fluid (HCF) with an injectable and thermosensitive chitosan (CS)/carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)/β-glycerol phosphate (BGP) hydrogel for effective control of spillage during the aspiration of hydatid cysts...

Hydatid disease in humans is caused by Echinococcus granulosus. It most commonly involves the liver and, to a lesser extent, the lungs and spleen; however, it is known to involve other areas, too. Involvement of bone by hydatid cyst is rare. Here, we describe the case of a 37-year-old woman who presented with pain in the left groin and swelling in the left thigh. The radiological imaging showed a fracture of the femoral neck and cysts in the shaft of the femur. Diagnosis of hydatid cyst was confirmed on the basis of histopathology of biopsy specimens...

Alveolar and cystic echinococcosis are important zoonotic diseases caused by the dog/fox tapeworms of Echinococcus granulosus and E. multilocularis, which are distributed in almost whole the world. The diseases remarkably impact on the people's health and economic development of communities. Echinococcus tapeworms need two mammalian animals to complete their lifecycle. The worms undergo different developmental stages (adult, egg/oncosphere, cyst, and protoscolex). Each stage has its own distinct physiological characteristics...

We aimed to assess the effect of exogenous Interleukin (IL)-17A in experimental model of echinococcosis. Swiss mice were inoculated intra-peritoneally with viable protoscoleces (PSCs). Then, IL-17A was administered at 100, 125 or 150 pg/mL two weeks after cystic echinococcosis (CE) induction. Cyst development and hepatic damage were macroscopically and histologically analyzed. We observed that in vivo IL-17A treatment at 100, 125, and 150 pg/mL, reduced metacestode growth by 72.3%, 93.8%, and 96.9%, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato (s.l.) is the causative agent of cystic echinococcosis (CE), which is a cosmopolitan zoonotic parasitic disease infecting humans and a wide range of mammalian species including cattle. Currently, little information is available on the genetic diversity of Echinococcus species among livestock in Sudan. In the present study, fifty (n = 50) hydatid cysts were collected from cattle carcasses (one cyst sample per animal) at Al-kadarou slaughterhouse, Khartoum North, Sudan...
