CANSECO-RAYMUNDO, Alejandro Rogelio; FLORES-TRUJILLO, Fernando; LOPEZ-LUNA, José de Jesús  and  MONRAZ-PEREZ, Sergio. Pulmonary hydatidosis: Presentation of a clinical case. Neumol. cir. torax [online]. 2014, vol.73, n.4, pp.243-246. ISSN 0028-3746.

Pulmonary hydatidosis is a parasitic disease caused by the larval stages of Echinococcus granulosus. We present a case of a 25 year old female patient, in direct contact with dogs, goats and poultry, in whom surgery and medical treatment, was successfully performed with resolution of postoperative complications. Information on its prevalence in Mexico is limited, so the importance of this report is due to the lack of information about this disease in our country.

Keywords : Echinococcus; pulmonary hydatidosis; hydatid cist.
