Giant viable hydatid cyst of
the lung: a case report
Hydatid disease is a parasitic
infestation caused by Echinococcus granulosus. The resulting large
cysts in the lung are a special clinical entity called giant hydatid cysts.
An 18-year-old Yemeni woman
presented with a dry cough and mild fever, with no history of chest pain,
dyspnoea or weight loss. Chest X-ray revealed a homogenous opacity almost
replacing the right lung. The patient underwent surgery which revealed a large,
viable hydatid cyst measuring 26 × 18 × 5 cm.
This case report provides evidence
that non-complicated hydatid cysts, even if very large, have a good prognosis
and can be safely treated by parenchyma-preserving surgery.
