Abstract

Human Echinococcus infection still remains an important health problem in endemic regions. Herein, we report a 5-year-old boy with hydatid disease who has spleen, lung, kidney and liver involvement simultaneously. To our knowledge, there is no pediatric case with hydatid disease in the literature reporting simultaneous involvement of spleen, kidney, liver and lungs as in our case.
