The Teaching Point

Hydatid cysts can be seen at unusual locations and any cystic or partly cystic lesion especially if multiloculated should be suspicious of hydatid cyst in areas where it is endemic.

Abstract
Hydatid disease is a worldwide zoonosis produced by the larval stage of the Echinococcus tapeworm. We demonstrate rare locations and unusual complications of this entity during past 6 years. Rare locations during our observation included lumbar spine, sacral spine, spleen, ovary, abdominal wall, diaphragm, pelvis and right kidney. Unusual complications included formation of bronchopulmonary fistula, complete collapse of left lung secondary to hilar location of Hydatid cyst and hydatiduria.
