Hydatid disease is a zoonosis caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus. It has a worldwide distribution, being endemic in Portugal. The diagnosis was established by imaging studies and specific serologic testing. Treatment consisted of four 4-week cycles of albendazol and resulted in a progressive reduction of the cyst as well as in a negative specific serology.

Figura 1. Figura 2. Se retiran y aspiran 31 quistes en total. Figura 3. Figura 4. Entre y , las tasas de incidencia de hidatidosis a nivel nacional se mantuvieron estables, con cifras cercanas a 2 por habitantes. A contar de y hasta , se observa una tendencia paulatina al descenso.

Por otro lado, la tasa de mortalidad por hidatidosis entre y se mantuvo inestable, en un rango entre 0,09 y 0,21 por habitantes [3]. Por lo tanto, todos los grupos etarios son susceptibles a padecer hidatidosis [10].

Se han encontrado escasos reportes de casos similares a nivel nacional, como el develado por Neira et al. Hydatidosis is a parasitic zoonosis of the genus Echinococcus that infects herbivores and humans in its larvae stage hydatid. Pediatric hydatidosis usually presents with involvement of the lung, in contrast to the adult clinical picture. Therefore, hepatopulmonary hydatidosis is an unusual entity in children.

A clinical case is presented, along with a short review of available literature. A thirteen-year-old male child, who lives in Cauquenes, a rural area of Central Chile, presents with three months of cough, fever, malaise, and an abdominal mass.

Imaging reveals multiple cystic images, located mostly in the right lung and the liver. He underwent thoracotomy and laparotomy for the removal of the hydatid cysts. He recovered from surgery and continued his pharmacological treatment. Hydatidosis is a public healthcare problem, and a major cause of morbidity and mortality.

It can be asymptomatic; thus, its diagnosis requires a high level of suspicion. Hepatopulmonary hydatidosis: pediatric case report and literature review. Medwave Dic;14 11 :e doi: Ficha PubMed. Contacto English Email: Clave:. Sapunar J. Rev Chil Cir. Martinez P. Chile, Rev Chil Infectol.

Echinococcosis is a parasitic infection caused by Echinococcus granulosus, which, in its cystic state, forms the socalled hydatid cyst. It presents important morbidity, with possible sequelae related to the location, and high costs due to surgical and prolonged pharmacological treatment. The liver and the lung are the most common anatomical locations, and much rarer are the kidney, spleen, brain, and heart, where the latter represents 0. This paper presents the case of a year-old girl, diagnosed with this disease, CE1 ultrasound classification, clinical group 1 confirmed by pathological anatomy with specific surgical and pharmacological treatment albendazole afterward. The patient recovered satisfactorily from the surgery and was discharged at 16 days, without complications. This site needs JavaScript to work properly.
