Cystic echinocccosis (CE), also known as hydatid  cyst disease, is caused by infection with the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, a long tapeworm found in dogs (definitive host) and sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs (intermediate hosts). Cystic hydatid disease usually affects the liver (50–70%) and less frequently the lung, the spleen, the kidney, the bones, and the brain. Liver hydatidosis can cause dissemination or anaphylaxis after a cyst ruptures into the biliary tract. Infection of the cyst can facilitate the development of liver abscesses and mechanic local complications, such as mass effect on bile ducts and vessels that can induce cholestasis, and portal hypertension. Treatment of hydatid liver cyst cane be performed laparoscopically. The modern treatment of hydatid cyst of the liver varies from surgical intervention to percutaneous drainage or medical therapy.
