A Hepatic hydatid cyst: four case reports
Abstract: We report four cases who were referred to Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical Hospital, Pune suffering from abdominal pain and gastrointestinal manifestations. The patients' history was unremarkable, except that they had contact with dogs and live in rural communities. Laboratory findings showed peripheral blood eosinophilia, leukocytosis, and elevated liver enzymes. Ultrasonography showed well-circumscribed cystic masses in the liver. Diagnosis of hydatid cysts was confirmed by computed tomography (CT). Surgical treatment was performed and all patients recovered well. The results of these cases support the nation that CT scan can led to increased clarity, regarding surgical management, because of discordance between radiographic and laboratory findings.
