TORRECILLA GARCIA-RIPOLL, Juan Ramón et al. Renal hydatidosis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.7, pp.739-742. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Our purpose is to report a case of renal hydatidosis and its treatment. Methods: The characteristics of the case are presented and discussed. Results and conclusions: The hydatic disease is a parasitic infestation caused by the larvae from echinococcosis granulosus. The kidney ranks third among all visceral localitations, compromising only 2% to 4% of all cases. Most of patients are asymptomatic for years and the correct preoperative diagnosis is difficult.

Keywords : Echinococcosis; Hydatic disease; Riñón.
