Abstract:

Hydatic disease (HD) continued to be a worldwide public health problem and even if the liver and lung cysts are the most frequent locations, their synchronous occurrence is uncommon described especially in children. A 13-year-old boy was hospitalized in our unit with a cystic liver image suggestive for a hydatic cyst (HC), incidentally discovered at US practiced for a febrile evolution after a routine appendectomy outwards done 6 days prior to admission. Chest X-ray also revealed a homogenous round opacity in the middle lobe of the right lung. Both imaging studies completed by CT and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay test (ELISA) established the diagnosis of hepatopulmonary HD, considered a distinct clinical entity. The little patient was successfully managed with a two-session surgical approach at 8 months interval, first treating the lung, followed by the location on the inferior surface of the liver (VIth segment). Continuous administration of albendazole contributed to the cure of the disease. This case report highlights the necessity that patients with once (fortuitous) discovered HC must be completely investigated for the possibility of another locations.
