Hydatid Disease

(Hydatidenkrankheit)

Echinococcosis is an infection with larvae of the tapeworm of Echinococcus granulosus or E. multilocularis (alveolar Hydatidenkrankheit). The symptoms depend on the organ involved from-z. B. jaundice and abdominal pain with liver cysts or coughing, chest pain and hemoptysis with pulmonary cysts. The rupture of cysts can cause fever, urticaria and severe anaphylactic reactions. Diagnosis is based on imaging examination of cyst fluid or serological tests. The treatment is carried out with albendazole, surgically or both, or by aspiration of cysts and instillation of a skolizidalen substance.

E. granulosus occurs frequently with sheep farming in the Mediterranean, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America regions. Dogs (also: wolves, foxes, cats and badgers) are definitive hosts and herbivores or humans as intermediate hosts (eg, sheep, horses, deer.). More Endemiegbietei found in various regions of Canada, Alaska and California. E. multilocularis worms come in foxes before, and the Hydatidenlarven for small wild rodents. Infected dogs and canids are the main connection to a human infection. E. multilocularis is found mainly in Central Europe, Alaska, Canada and Siberia. In the continental US, the range of naturally occurring Wyoming and the Dakotas to the upper Midwest ranges. Rarely, E. can vogelii or E. oliganthus a polycystic Hydatidenerkrankung in humans cause, especially in the liver. These species are found in Central and South America. Pathophysiology Inge Formatted eggs from animal feces (which can exist in the fur of dogs or other animals) hatch in the intestine and put oncospheres (immature forms of the parasite, which are closed at an embryonic envelope) free. Oncospheres penetrate the intestinal wall, walking on the circulation and remain in the liver or lungs or, less frequently, in the brain, bones or other organs. No adult worms are in the GI tract of people present in the tissues E. granulosus oncospheres develop into cysts grow slowly (usually over many years) to large unilocular fluid-filled lesions (Hydatidenzysten). Within these cysts brood capsules are formed which contain many small infectious Protoscolices. Large cysts may contain> 1 l of a highly antigenic Hydatidenflüssigkeit and millions of Protoscolices. Occasionally form inside or outside of the primary cysts daughter cysts. If a cyst in the liver is leaking or tears, the infection can spread into the peritoneum. Life cycle of Echinococcus.
