An unusual localization of cyst hydatidosis associated with cardiac hydatid disease/Hidatik kistin ahsilmadik lokalizasyonu ve kardiyak kist hidatikle beraberligi.A 50-year-old woman was admitted to our clinic for surgical removal of cardiac hydatid cyst. Before the admission, she had been referred to other clinic with signs and complaints of a large mass in the medial aspect of the left upper leg and severe pain. A multiloculated hydatid cyst between the iliopsoas and pectineus muscle had been diagnosed using an ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), noninvasive diagnostic technique that uses nuclear magnetic resonance to produce cross-sectional images of organs and other internal body structures. (MRI 1. (application) MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
2. MRI - Measurement Requirements and Interface. ). Magnetic resonance images demonstrated a well-defined cystic mass containing a few round lesions. The mother cyst had a thin, low-signal intensity rim on T1 and T2 weighted sequences. The daughter cyst exhibited a very low signal on T1-weighted images.

After the diagnosis, albendazole 10 mg/kg daily for three months had been given immediately. At the follow-up, the symptoms disappeared and the MRI confirmed that the amount of the cystic lesions have decreased and became calcified Calcified
Hardened by calcium deposits.
Mentioned in: Heart Valve Repair (Fig. 1). But, transthoracic echocardiography and chest computed tomography revealed a cardiac hydatid cyst, 19x13 mm in size, originated from the interventricular septum (Fig. 2 and Fig. 3). Therefore, the patient underwent operation for removal of hydatid cyst in interventricular septum. We prescribed albendazole 10 mgr/kg daily for three months to prevent recurrence postoperatively.

The preoperative workup including ultrasonography, transthoracic echocardiography, and total body computed tomography must be performed routinely as we show in this case.
VEDA Cok ileri bir tarihte Cok yasli olarak Sessizce ayrilmaliyim Kimseye pek gozukmeden Ve kimseyi rahatsiz etmeden. Masamin uzerinde Dunden kalan isler Tamamlanmamis yazilar Okunmayi bekleyen kitaplar Ve anilar ve umutlar. Filleri kuyrugundan cekerek Tepeleri asirtmakti gorevim Gunler bitti filler tukenmedi Ben elimden geleni yaptim Gerisini siz tamamlayin. Bosa gecmedi hayatim Daha fazlasi olabilirdi ama 'Buna da ?ukur' demeliyim Iste sevgili dostlar Ben boyle veda etmeliyim. Ismail Cem New York, 1995
