Hydatid cyst of the kidney: a case report and review of the literature

Neeta Shah, Mubin Patel, Vijay Agrawal, Meena Patel.

Primary involvement of the kidney is rare in case of hydatid disease. We present a case of primary left renal hydatid cyst in a 40 year old female patient admitted with left lumbar pain radiating to the back. Computed tomography of the patient was done and was suggestive of hydatid cyst involving the lower pole of the left kidney. The cyst was managed by left Nephrectomy with open surgical excision and preoperative course of Albendazole. This case emphasizes on better detection and evaluation of such rare cases to identify better treatment strategies.

Key words: Cystic, Echinococcosis, Hydatidoses, Hydatid, Renal
