Abstract

Abstract.

Multiple hydatid cysts in the liver rarely occur in the pediatric population. Here, we present the case of a 16-year-old girl who presented with six hydatid cysts in the liver. The cysts were surgically removed and all found to be infertile. Interestingly, the patient had post-operative eosinophilia. From this experience, we conclude that individualized treatment is necessary for patients with multiple hydatid cysts.
