ABSTRACT
A 40-year-old male patient presented to us with complaints of pain in abdomen for the past 2 weeks and fever for 3 days. The patient gave history of being previously operated for hydatid cyst of liver 15 years back. His chest radiograph and computed tomography scan revealed a cystic lesion in the right lobe of liver and a cyst in left lung. The patient was managed surgically. Aspirate from the cyst fluid showed plenty of hooklets and scolices of Echinococcus granulosus. An intact brood capsule was also seen. Diagnosis of hydatidosis was further confirmed by histopathological examination. Post-operative the patient had a good recovery.

Mentions: An intact brood capsule was also seen. Antibodies to Echinococcus were significantly positive (1:18) by indirect haemagglutination test (IHA). Histopathological examination revealed classical echinococcal cyst (Fig. 4). Microbiological findings, a positive serology and histopathological findings reconfirmed the case of hydatidosis. Following surgery, the patient had a good post-operative recovery. Symptomatically there was marked improvement. The patient was discharged on a regime including Albendazole (10mg/kg/day) for 28 days, as it was a case with recurrence. He is now in regular follow up from last 12months to the hospital. There is no further recurrence and the patient has shown good recovery.
