Case Report - Microbiology: Current Research (2018) Volume 2, Issue 3
The first case report of cystic echinococcosis.
The abstract must include the following separate sections:
Background: Hydatid disease, which is caused by larvae of Echinococcus multilocularis. Is common in husbandry area. It’s serious disease to human that has a significantly high fatality rate. However, as a non-echinococcous endemic area, Guangxi has not reported on hydatid disease, and this first primary patient may provide new possible routes of infection and diagnostic ideas.
Case presentation: A brief description of the patient’s clinical and demographic details, the diagnosis, any interventions and the outcomes. The patient suffered from hypertension for 6 years and hypo tensors were used to control the blood pressure. In 2014, he was confirmed to have hepatic cyst. In December 2016, he had been hospitalized in the Department of Encephalopathy because of intracerebral haemorrhage, which led his left limb activities impaired. This patient reported a hepatic cyst detected by B-mode ultrasound during the physical examination 1 year ago. He did not pay close attention to it and did not receive any re-examination. Recently, B-mode ultrasound in another physical examination showed hepatic cyst (176 × 158 mm). No obvious abnormality was found in the gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and both kidneys. Computed tomography scan can be applied to examine all organs in human body and is an important diagnostic examination for echinococcosis.
Conclusions: A brief summary of the clinical impact or potential implications of the case report. This patient finally diagnosis as Cystic echinococcosis in the right liver lobe (Simplex cyst), hypertensive disease, hemorrhage sequel and arrhythmia-atrial premature beat. According to the diagnosis, we plan the treatment as using laparoscopic surgery for echinococcosis. This case will help us to find out possible causes of the incidence of echinococcosis in Guangxi and the potential transmission risks, and thus put forward the measures for the prevention and treatment of echinococcosis in Guangxi.
