Abstract

Echinococcosis or hydatidosis which is caused by the tapeworm, Echinococcus granulosus, has the highest prevalence in cattle raising countries. Hydatid disease mainly affects the pulmonary and the digestive systems and it rarely involves the renal system. This case emphasizes the need for a better detection and evaluation of such rare cases which involve the kidney.
