Management of Hydatid Disease

Management of Hydatid Disease Abstract Hydatid disease is seen quite frequently in the sheep-raising areas of the world, such as South America, Australia, Greece, and certain Arabian countries. In India, this disease seems to be less common, but a few published series1-3 and reports of isolated cases4-6 from various parts of the country do show that the disease is endemic. Similarly, the endemic nature of the disease in North America has been reported.7 It occurs frequently enough to be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal masses and certain chronic respiratory symptoms. Over the past few years, we have had the experience of treating some Tibetan refugees who had this disease. This prompted us to review all our cases from the Christian Medical College Hospital. There was a total of 33 proven cases from 1957 to 1967. This communication is based on the analysis of these cases and their treatment. Patients Among References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Hydatid disease is seen quite frequently in the sheep-raising areas of the world, such as South America, Australia, Greece, and certain Arabian countries. In India, this disease seems to be less common, but a few published series1-3 and reports of isolated cases4-6 from various parts of the country do show that the disease is endemic. Similarly, the endemic nature of the disease in North America has been reported.7 It occurs frequently enough to be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal masses and certain chronic respiratory symptoms. Over the past few years, we have had the experience of treating some Tibetan refugees who had this disease. This prompted us to review all our cases from the Christian Medical College Hospital. There was a total of 33 proven cases from 1957 to 1967. This communication is based on the analysis of these cases and their treatment. Patients Among References 1.
