Hydatid Cyst Spleen and Right Adnexa of Uterus

Dr Jasmeen Kaur


Abstract: Introduction: Hydatid Cysts, or Hydatidosis, result from an intermediary host to Taenia Echinococcus larva turning into a cyst within the organism. Hydatidosis is a common zoonosis that affects many humans and animals, especially in poorly developed countries. The most frequently involved organs are the liver, followed by the lung. The involvement of the genital tract is rare, and the occurrence in the uterus is an extreme rarity. Case: A 32yr F P2L2 presented with menorrhagia for 3 months, pain lower abdomen for 1 month and heaviness in the lower abdomen for 1 month. No history of loss of weight and appetite. On physical and gynaecological examinations, no pathological finding was detected. USG and CT revealed a hydatid cyst in the spleen and right adnexa. Conclusion: Hydatid cysts in the genital tract are rare, and their occurrence in the adnexa is an extreme rarity. Differentiation between hydatid cysts and malignant disease of the related organ is difficult. To avoid misdiagnosis, a careful examination of pelvic masses should be carried out in endemic areas to detect hydatid cysts.
