Hydatid disease is one of the world's most geographically widespread zoonoses. It is present on all inhabited continents and occurs in tropical, subtropical, temperate, sub-arctic and arctic regions. The two countries with the greatest areas over which transmission occurs are almost certainly the Soviet Union and China. Until recently, however, very little information about hydatidosis in China was available outside the country(1). Since the 'open-door' policy over the past few years the great importance of hydatid disease in north and western China is gradually being realized.
