    Hydatid cyst disease is a parasitic disease caused by the larval forms of echinococci. Although the liver and lungs are the most common organs affected by the disease, it may appear rarely in central nervous system. It has two main forms as the cystic form and alveolar form. Cerebral hydatid...

    Background: Hydatid disease is a life-threatening parasitic infestation caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Infection with E. granulosus typically results in the formation of hydatid cysts in the liver, lungs, kidney, and spleen. Primary intracranial hydatid cyst disease is extremely rare. Here,...

    Hydatid cysts of the retrovesical region are rare. They are often adherent to the adjacent bowel and bladder, and complete removal is associated with potential injuries. The Palanivelu hydatid system allows minimally invasive treatment of hydatid cysts with no adjacent organ injuries. We...

    Background: Even when radiological images are considered pathognomic for intracranial hydatid cysts, subtle image characteristics are evident depending upon the status/types of hydatid cysts. These imaging features, if finely scrutinized, may help to modify conventional surgical techniques of...
