Background & aim: Hydatid disease of urinary tract is limited to renal involvement by echinococcus granolosus. Involvement of other parts of the urinary tract has been limited. However, the other types of echinococcuses are rare. The aim of this study was to report experiences with renal hydatid cyst, and a brief review of articles.

 

Methods: In the present study, 16 patients aged 9 to 61 were operated in Yasuj, Iran, from September 2001 to September 2005. Diagnostic methods included ultrasound, CT scan, MRI and serologic tests. Fourteen patients were diagnosed by open surgery with peristaltic neoplasia through peristaltic peristalsis and 2 patients diagnosed with renal tumor, but their pathology was diagnosed. In addition, in this study review was carried out of the published English-language studies in Pabmind and Scopus.

 

Results: The mean age of the patients 39 years (9 to 61 years), the ratio of women to men, serologic tests were negative in both cases, which were negative for nephrectomy, ultrasound, CT scan and MRI had no specific differentiation for renal hydatid cyst.

 

Conclusions: Renal hydatid cyst is still one of the health problems that should be considered. Due to advances in imaging techniques, rapid diagnosis of kidney hydatid cyst is possible, but renal hydatid cyst should be rejected in any cystic mass in the kidney, especially in endemic areas before surgery.
