Introduction: Hydatid cysts most commonly present in the liver and the lungs; however, they can appear more rarely in other locations, such as the mesentery, with a rather unclear mechanism of manifestation. Herein, we present a case of simultaneous presence of hydatid cysts in the liver and the mesentery of a young man. Case report: A 39-year-old man was referred to our Department for further investigation of intermittent abdominal pain, especially in the right upper quadrant, and abdominal distension...

Causes of urinary retention in old men include benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis, prostate cancer, Scarring of the urethra or bladder neck as a result of injury or surgery, use of certain medicines particularly NSAIDs and opioid analgesics, constipation and neurogenic bladder. When the above common causes are not quite obvious by clinical examination and relevant investigations, then it is necessary to think of other rare diseases. It is with the above in our mind that a case of bladder outflow obstruction due to a large primary retrovesical hydatid cyst is herein reported in a 58-year-old man...

INTRODUCTION: The hydatid cyst is a real public health problem in Tunisia. The retrovesical localization is rare. It is considered an aberrant or ectopic location defined by the development of the parasite in the subvesical and retrovesical fat. METHODS: From 2004 to 2013, 4 patients with retrovesical hydatid cyst were hospitalized and operated in the Department of Urology at the Charles Nicolle hospital of Tunis in Tunisia. The average patient age was 40.75 years (range: 23-76)...

Cystic hydatidosis (CH) is a worldwide distributed parasitic zoonosis. It is considered one of the 17 neglected parasitic tropical diseases, among cysticercosis and soil transmitted helminthiases. CH is caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, a tapeworm that usually infects dogs and other carnivorous animals as definitive hosts and herbivorous animals and rarely humans as intermediate hosts. Main primary localizations are the liver and the lung. In less than 3% they can primarily be present in the spleen...

Retrovesical cysts are extremely rare. For differential diagnosis radiologic findings and serologic tests can be used. In this article, we aimed to report our approach to diagnose and to treat a primary huge hydatid cyst in retrovesical space, between sigmoid colon and bladder. A 34-year old patient presented to our hospital with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Abdominal ultrasound reported a 14x8 cm cystic lesion adjacent to the posterior wall of the bladder. Computerized tomography revealed a 14 x 8 cm cystic mass adjacent to bladder posteriorly and prostate and seminal vesicle anteriorly in the retrovesical space...

Some of the metacestodes are not only zoonotic but are also responsible for severe tissue damage, reduction in milk and meat production, and considerable economic loss due to condemnation of the infected organs of the herbivorous animals. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of Cysticercus ovis, Cysticercus tenuicollis, hydatid cyst and Coenurus gaigeri in sheep and goats and Cysticercus bovis, Cysticereus tenuicollis and hydatid cyst in cattle. A total of 1050 sheep, 950 goats and 500 cattle slaughtered at Shiraz Slaughterhouse were carefully examined for these metacestodes...

We present a technique of transurethral transvesical endoscopic management of an intraperitoneal retrovesical hydatid cyst. Cystoscopy is performed using a 20.8F nephroscope. The cyst is punctured using an 18-gauge, 36-cm needle through the nephroscope operating channel. Saline (20%) is used as scolicidal agent. After balloon tract dilation, the nephroscope is introduced into the cyst, and the hydatid material is evacuated.

About 75% of all hydatid cysts are located in the liver and they are singular. Extrahepatic hydatid cysts are rare pre- and intra-operative findings. The majority of such locations are consecutive from a hepatic primary. We present the clinical case of a 28-years woman, clinically diagnosed with a pelvic tumor. Ultrasonography and CT-scan showed two large tumors: a 17/10 cm left liver cyst, that contained free floating hyperechogenic hydatid sand and a 12/11 cm pelvic cyst, that displaced the urinary bladder, the uterus, the sigmoid colon and the rectum...

Echinococcosis or hydatid disease which is caused by Echinococcus group of cestodes is very rare in pregnancy. While liver and lungs are commonly involved, other sites can be rarely affected. The management of hydatid disease in pregnancy is challenging in view of varied presentation and manifestation. We report a case of hydatid cyst arising from the bladder associated with pregnancy and presenting with abdominal pain. The cyst was surgically removed and the bladder wash was given with povidone-iodine. The postoperative recovery was uneventful with ongoing pregnancy...

My stay in the Urology Unit of Necker's hospital in my last year of residency in 1960 was a decisive turning point in my career. My training as resident in the urologic department was planned for one half year, however it was extended to five half years of clinicat, after that professor Couvelaire invited me to participate to a competitive exam of professor in urology which held in December 1962. The medical school of Algiers, the only known active institution in Maghreb, planned an appointment of urologic surgeon...

Echinococcal cysts usually involve the liver; extrahepatic localization is reported in 11% of all cases of abdominal hydatid disease. We report a case of a prevesical hydatid cyst. A 53-year-old man was admitted with a large suprapubic mass. Ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a cystic mass situated in front of the urinary bladder. There were no cysts in any other location. Serological tests were positive for Echinococcus. The patient was operated on and the cyst was completely excised. The pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of Echinococcosis...

We present a patient with symptoms of abdominal pain and frequent urination due to a huge mass in the retrovesical region. All imaging modalities revealed a cystic mass containing small daughter cysts located between the urinary bladder and rectum. Its characteristics led us to suspect the presence of a hydatid cyst, and an indirect hemagglutination test for Echinococcus granulosus was found positive. No other involvement of hydatid cystic disease was detected. The primary site for the hydatid disease was therefore regarded as the pelvis, on which only a few cases have been reported previously...

Our case concerns 66-year-old female with a multiple unusual locations of hydatid cysts including bladder, psoas muscle and liver. Coexistence of hydatid cysts in these localizations has not been previously reported. The diagnosis of vesical hydatid cyst was facilitated by the coexistence of other echinococcosis locations. Treatment consists of the excision of the cysts in the same session without any postoperative anthelmintic drugs. In a two-year follow-up no recurrence has occurred.

A case of intraprostatic cyst is reported. The patient presented with a completely evacuated hydatid cyst of the prostate. The intraprostatic cystic cavity that was communicating with the urethra developed urinary stones. The patient had transurethral resection of the prostate, the stones in the cyst were pushed into the bladder and fragmented using a ballistic lithotripter. Pathological examination concluded to a prostatic hydatid cyst that had evacuated through the urethra and was complicated by stone formation within the residual cavity...

A case of intravesical hydatid cyst is reported. The cyst was completely evacuated cystoscopically with intravesical instillation of a scolicidal agent (hydrogen peroxide) to destroy scolices and daughter cysts. The postoperative course was uneventful, and follow-up did not show evidence of recurrence. Because this is the first case, to our knowledge, to be reported, little is known about the nonoperative management of such hydatid localization. A recommendation is made, however, to adopt this minimally invasive procedure...

Hydatid disease, the parasitic infestation caused by the cestode, echinococcus granulosus involves mainly the liver and the lungs though no organ is immune. Genito urinary involvement has been found mainly in the kidneys and rarely in other structures such as, bladder and epididymis. Isolated retrovesical location of the hydatid cyst is a very rare condition whose manifestations appears after a long course of the disease and are due to compression of bladder, causing the bladder out flow obstruction. Such rare case of bladder out flow obstruction is presented...
