Synonyms:
Hydatid disease, hydatidosis, echinococcus cyst.

Definition:
It is a cyst formed in the liver or, less frequently, elsewhere, that contains larvae of the tapeworm
Echinococcus granulosus, chiefly in ruminants, whose eggs are carried from the intestinal tract to
the liver through the blood.

Types:
There are two main morphological forms of hydatid cysts found in humans:
• the unilocular hydatid cyst and
• the osseous hydatid cyst.
• A third form in humans is the alveolar hydatid cyst, caused by Echinococcus
multilocularis. (Syn: echinococcus cyst).

Life Cycle of parasite:


Dogs are the main hosts of the adult worm. Sheep, cattle, rodents, and deer are the natural hosts
for the larvae. Humans, especially children, can be attacked by larvae by swallowing eggs, which
are shed in the stool of infected dogs.
The disease is most common in countries where animals are raised with the help of dogs.

Signs and Symptoms:


Patients generally lack symptoms, except for a swollen liver and a dull ache over the right upper
quarter of the stomach. X-ray tests are used in diagnosis, and because no medical treatment is
available, surgical removal of the cyst is required.
According to allopathy, removal of the cysts is the only treatment.
