Abstract

Echinococcosis is considered to be a potentially lethal zoonotic disease that causes serious damage to hosts. In our case, we examined a rare case of echinococcosis localized in the gluteal region in a 36-year-old Turkish male and its treatment process. The patient without a chronic disease was admitted to our clinic with right lower quadrant abdominal pain, indigestion, and rapid weight loss complaints. According to the results of hydatid cyst hemagglutination, the patient was diagnosed with Echinococcus. After the surgery and the treatment with omnipaque, the patient’s complaints disappeared.
