INTRODUCTION: The hydatid cyst disease is a zoonotic infection caused by Echinococcus granulos. It usually causes infection in the liver and lungs. To a lesser extent, it may cause infection in the spleen, heart, bones and central nervous system In this study, serological examination of hydatid cyst cases showing localization out of liver and lungs has been aimed.
METHODS: The clinical, radiological, and serological findings of a total 435 patients included to the examination between May 2010 and 2013, have been evaluated together. The indirect hemagglutination (IHA) test results were retrospectively scanned from hospital database of 288 patients among those who have received treatment because of hydatid cyst. The findings have been evaluated statistically through Chi-square trend analysis method according to ages and their localizations.
RESULTS: According to the data obtained, 12(7.2%) of 288 patients showing atypical localization in IHA results were positive and 13(9.6%) of them were found negative (p=3.393).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The hydatid cyst is a disease that can be seen in every age range, besides, atypical localizations can also be seen in any age range. In terms of protecting public health, the public’s awareness should be raised and a greater emphasis on prevention methods are needed.
