Abstract

Hydatid cyst of the liver remains a frequent parasitic disease caused by the development of the larval form of Echinococcus granulosis; it is often discovered incidentally during routine symptoms, rarely at the stage of complications. However, the diagnostic difficulties and pitfalls are numerous due to the differential diagnosis of the liver’s cystic lesions, despite the current improvement of cross-sectional imaging (ultrasound, CT and MRI). We report a case of a hydatid cyst of the liver discovered during a secondary infection, emphasizing the contribution of imaging and serology that can confirm the diagnosis before starting any therapeutic procedure.

However, the diagnostic difficulties and pitfalls are numerous due to the differential diagnosis of the liver’s cystic lesions, despite the current improvement of cross-sectional imaging (ultrasound, CT and MRI). We report a case of a hydatid cyst of the liver discovered during a secondary infection, emphasizing the contribution of imaging and serology that can confirm the diagnosis before starting any therapeutic procedure.
