A Case of Surgically Disseminated Hydatidosis: A preventable occurrence?

Aritra Paul, Abheepsita Mukhopadhyay, Sagnika Ukil, Subhabrata Das.


Disseminated Hydatid disease, though uncommon, is difficult to treat, once it occurs. We describe here, a case, where a patient presented with disseminated intraabdominal hydatid cysts 10 years after excision of a primary hepatic cyst. As an ideal scolicidal agent remains to be discovered, emphasis still remains on careful adoption of measures to prevent intra-operative spillage, along with prolonged medical treatment. Meanwhile, there seems to be scant discussion on exactly how viable scolices implant on peritoneal surfaces; perhaps research in this direction could lead to the novel methods of prevention of dissemination.

Key words: Hydatidosis, Infectious Disease, Dissemination, Scolicidal
