 en Primary Pelvic Hydatid Cyst An unusual cause of cystic adnexal image (mass)
Benkaddour, Yassir Ait


Hydatid cyst is a parasitic human infection which is endemic in North Africa. It is more frequently localized in the liver and the lung. Involvement of others sites is usually secondary to these primary localizations. We report 2 exceptional cases of primary pelvic hydatid cyst diagnosed respectively in a 37-year-old and in a 48-year-old women. These cases will focus on the different characteristics of the infection, and the benefit of including epidemiologic arguments in using the diagnostical approach of adnexal masses.

Hydatid cyst Pelvic Ultrasonography.

Le kyste hydatique est une infection humaine qui est endémique en Afrique du nord. I l est surtout localisé dans le foie et le poumon ; l'implication des autres foyers est souvent secondaire à ces localisations primaires. Nous rapportons deux cas de kyste hydatique pelvien primaire qui ont été diagnostiques respectivement chez les femmes âgées de 37 ans à 38 ans. Ces cas mettront l'accent sur les différentes caractéristiques de l'infection et les bénéfices qu'on peut tirer si l'on inclut des arguments épidémiologiques en faveur de l'emploi de l'approche diagnostique des masses annexielles.
