Mehmet Sargin, Mehmet Selçuk Uluer, Sadık Ozmen.

The clinical picture of ethanol intoxication can present a broad range of signs and symptoms, from mild perception disorders to cardiac arrest and death. Although ethanol intoxication is a common condition, it is reported in literature here for the first time in a patient treated percutaneously for a hydatid cyst of the liver. The case was additionally complex given the fact that the patient was in the first trimester of pregnancy. Presented here is a case of ethanol intoxication in a 13-week pregnant woman who was treated percutaneously using 800 ml of ethanol for a hydatid cyst in the liver.

Key words: Ethanol intoxication, percutaneous treatment of hydatid liver cysts, pregnant patient
