Author information

Department of Pediatric Pulmonology, Sureyyapasa Chest Diseases and Thoracic Surgery Training and Investigation Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.


Hydatid disease is one of the major health problems in countries where hydatidosis is endemic. Atypical radiological findings may lead to misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis in these patients. A 13-year-old boy was presented who admitted to the hospital with a history of cough and hemoptysis for six months. He had a non-resolving pneumonia. Bronchoscopy showed endobronchial lesion and the diagnosis of hydatid disease was confirmed by pathological examination.
