Bottom Line: Hydatidosis is a cyclo-zoonotic infection of the larvae form of Echinococcus granulosus (canine tapeworm).The majority of hydatid cysts are seen in the liver (65%) as most of the embryos are trapped within it.To the best of our knowledge, this is the fourth and perhaps the largest case report of hydatidosis involving the mandible in the literature in right infratemporal region involving the ramus condyle unit in a 35-year-old female with chief complaint of pain on right side of temporomandibular joint area on mastication, and opening and closing of mouth.

ABSTRACT
Echinococcosis is a parasitic infection also called as hydatid disease or hydatidosis. Hydatidosis is a cyclo-zoonotic infection of the larvae form of Echinococcus granulosus (canine tapeworm). The majority of hydatid cysts are seen in the liver (65%) as most of the embryos are trapped within it. Infratemporal region is an unusual site for hydatidosis and has been sparsely reported in the literature. To the best of our knowledge, this is the fourth and perhaps the largest case report of hydatidosis involving the mandible in the literature in right infratemporal region involving the ramus condyle unit in a 35-year-old female with chief complaint of pain on right side of temporomandibular joint area on mastication, and opening and closing of mouth.

Figure 3: Presurgical three-dimensional reconstruction computed tomography showing thinning out of the condylar ramus unit on right side

Mentions: An orthopantomogram of the region revealed an ill-defined osteolytic lesion involving the ramus condyle unit of the right side of size 3 cm × 1.5 cm. Computerized tomographic scan showed a well encapsulated fluid filled cystic lesion of size 4.9 cm × 3.8 cm with osteolysis and thinning out of the condylar unit encroaching the infratemporal region and abutting the pterygoid plates on right side [Figures 1–3]. USG liver and plain posteroanterior view chest radiograph were normal with only a slight increase in eosinophil count. Surgical procedure under general anesthesia was planned. The region was approached via an extended Risdon's approach extending and curving near the lower ear lode. Dissecting sub platysmally, pterygomassetric sling was incised. The cyst was judiciously dissected out of the surrounding tissues in toto. The intraoperative and postoperative course were uneventful.
