Figure 2: Intravenous urogram (IVU) revealed a space-occupying lesion involving mid and lower pole of right kidney causing displacement of collecting system superiorly

Mentions: A 6-year-old female patient presented with right side loin pain of 4 months duration. General physical examination revealed a ballotable lump in right renal area. The ultrasonography (USG) and Contrast-enhanced CT scan of the abdomen showed a large exophytic cyst (10 × 8 × 8.4 cm) involving mid and lower pole of right kidney with no solid component or calcifications [Figure 1] i.e. type 1 cyst according to Gharbi classification. ELISA (Serology) was suggestive of hydatid disease. IVU revealed a space-occupying lesion involving mid and lower pole of right kidney causing displacement of collecting system superiorly [Figure 2]. There was no evidence of such cystic lesion in any other viscera. The patient was explored under general anesthesia through right sub-costal incision, and the diagnosis of a hydatid cyst was confirmed. Right nephrectomy was done, because cyst was involving almost whole of the kidney including hilum, sparing only a small portion of upper pole. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis.
