Abstract

Hydatid cyst (HC) is a zoonotic infection caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus parasites. Although the liver is the most commonly affected organs, especially the lungs being primary, spleen, peritoneum, ovaries, and such as brain may be primary or secondary placement in organs. The diagnosis of HC is made by characteristic radiographic appearance and positive serology. Ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used with success in imaging. However, together with this, HC, which is not showing characteristic symptoms, can be mixed with other cysts. In recent years, diffusion-weighted MRI, distinguishing these cysts (DW-MRI) are to investigate the role publications are available. In this paper, the role of diffusion weighted MRI in the differential diagnosis of hydatid cyst are discussed.

Özet

Hidatid kist (HK), Ekinokokus parazit larvaları tarafından oluşturulan zoonotik bir enfeksiyondur. Karaciğer en çok etkilenen organ olmasına rağmen özellikle akciğer olmak üzere dalak, periton, overler, ve beyin gibi organlar primer ve sekonder olarak tutulabilir. HK tanısı karakteristik radyolojik görünüm ve pozitif serolojik testlerle konur. Ultrasonografi, bilgisayarlı tomografi ve manyetik rezonans görüntüleme görüntülemede başarıyla kullanılır. Ancak, bunlarla birlikte karakteristik semptomlar göstermeyen hidatid kist diğer kistlerle karışabilir. Son yıllarda difüzyon ağırlıklı görüntülemenin, bu kistlerin ayrımındaki rolünü araştıran yayınlar bulunmaktadır. Bu yazıda, difüzyon ağırlıklı MRG’nin hidatik kist ayırıcı tanısındaki rolü tartışılmaktadır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Difüzyon ağırlıklı MRG, Hidatid kist, Karaciğer
