Abstract

in English, Turkish

The aim of the present study was to present a case with secondary hydatid cysts in both uterus and colon. The patient was a 71-year-old female living in Hakkari, Turkey. She was admitted to the Van Yuzuncu Yil University Faculty of Medicine Medical Center with complaints of chronic abdominal and pelvic pain, and swelling in the abdomen. First, the sagittal T2 weighted magnetic rezonance imaging (MR) showed a type-3 cyst hydatid with daughter vesicles located at the posterior of uterus. Later, MR revealed a type-2 cystic lesion with detached membrane adhered to the anterior wall of colon and it was reported to be associated with abdomen. When the previous liver surgery history of the patient was kept in mind, the new finding was suggestive of a secondary cystic hydatid . In conclusion, it is possible to diagnose secondary cystic echinococcosis in patients with a history of primary cyst surgery in liver or any other organ by combining the symptoms and imaging findings.
