Yuksel M, Demirpolat G, Sever A, Bakaris S, Bulbuloglu E, Elmas N - Korean J Radiol (2007 Nov-Dec)

Bottom Line: Unusual sites for this disease can cause diagnostic problems.This pictorial essay illustrates various radiological findings of HD in the liver, spleen, kidney, pancreas, peritoneal cavity, omentum, adrenal, ovary, lung, mediastinum and retroperitoneum.Familiarity with the imaging findings of HD may be helpful in making an accurate diagnosis and preventing potential complications.

ABSTRACT
Hydatid disease (HD) is an endemic illness in many countries, and it poses an important public health problem that's influenced by peoples' socioeconomic status and migration that spreads this disease. Although rare, it may occur in any organ or tissue. The most common site is the liver (59-75%), followed in frequency by lung (27%), kidney (3%), bone (1-4%) and brain (1-2%). Other sites such as the heart, spleen, pancreas and muscles are very rarely affected. Unusual sites for this disease can cause diagnostic problems. This pictorial essay illustrates various radiological findings of HD in the liver, spleen, kidney, pancreas, peritoneal cavity, omentum, adrenal, ovary, lung, mediastinum and retroperitoneum. Familiarity with the imaging findings of HD may be helpful in making an accurate diagnosis and preventing potential complications.

Figure 3: Type III hydatid cyst in a 28-year-old man. Densely calcified lesion is seen on the right upper quadrant of the abdomen on barium radiography of the stomach.

Mentions: Type III HCs represent a calcified, non-viable degenerated cyst (Fig. 3) (1). US demonstrates cyst calcification as hyperechoic areas with a strong posterior shadow. Cyst calcification can be seen as round, hyperattenuating areas on CT and as hypointense areas on MRI (2, 3).
