Abstract:   (2659 Views)
Pulmonary Echinococcus granulosus is a parasitic infection found worldwide. Patients usually present with cough and/or hemoptysis with pulmonary nodule (s). Rarely do they enlarge to such sizes as to present with dyspnea. We report two cases with the largest hydatid cysts of the lung reported up to date: one measuring 24.5 x 19 cm and the other 19.5 x 16.5 cm. These cysts were removed intact without rupturing and with decreased complications using the Barrett (enucleation) technique.
