An uncommon presentation of hydatid cyst in submandibular salivary gland—a case report

An uncommon presentation of hydatid cyst in submandibular salivary gland—a case report Hydatid disease is a parasitosis known as hydatidosis or echinococcosis. It affects both animals and humans. Hydatid cyst of the head and neck region is uncommon and the involvement of salivary glands, especially the submandibular gland is very rare. A case of submandibular gland hydatid cyst is reported in this article. A patient presented with a swelling of submandibular region since 8 months. On examination, swelling revealed a soft, non-tender, mobile mass with fluctuation positive when done bimanually measuring 8 × 6 cm. Chest X-ray and abdominal ultrasonography were normal. Excision of the submandibular gland with the mass was performed and pathological examination confirmed the swelling to be a hydatid cyst of the right submandibular gland.
