Interventricular septal cardiac hydatid cyst mimicking hypertrophic cardiomyopathy/Hipertrofik kardiyomiyop atiyi taklit eden interventrikuler septal kist hidatik.
A 27-year- old, male patient with nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was admitted to our clinic with exertional dyspnea. Physical examination and routine laboratory tests were normal. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed asymmetric septal hypertrophy (29 mm) without gradient in the left ventricular outflow tract (Fig.1 A). A cystic structure encircled by a hyperechogenic calcified membrane compatible with cardiac hydatid cyst was demonstrated in apical four -chamber view (Fig. 1B). A cystic mass localized in the interventricular septum was demonstrated in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (Fig. 2, Video 1. See corresponding video movie images at www.anakarder.com). Patient was operated with the diagnosis of cardiac mass of unknown origin. Histopathological examination of surgery specimen revealed diagnosis of hydatid cyst. Hydatid cyst rarely involves heart and particularly interventricular septum. The diagnosis of hydatid cyst of the interventricular septum is difficult because of clinical and radiographic findings may be lacking or nonspecific.
