Abstract

We report a case of metastatic alveolar echinococcosis of the liver. There were calcifications of the liver parenchyma, and a large tumour adjacent to the porta hepatis infiltrated neighbouring structures. In addition, haematogenous metastases to the spine and foot were found. This extensive haematogenous "metastasis" is rare and may complicate diagnosis, but the typical findings in the liver should permit the correct conclusion.
