Özet

Hydatid disease caused by Echinococcus often manifests as slowly growing cystic mass and mainly affects the liver or lung and rarely other parts of the body such as brain, heart, bone and muscle. Cyst may be single or multiple, uni- or multiloculated. In this paper 4 hydatic cases, multiple and atypically localized are presented. Of the 4 cases, 2 were known to suffer from hydatid disease, having had a hepatic cyst removal previously. Thus, when faced with a hydatid cyst in any part of the body, it is preferable to examine other parts of the body by radiological imaging methods.
