Abstract

A patient had primary muscle hydatidosis of the thigh that was not detected radiologically or by fine-needle aspiration before surgery. The risk of dissemination during the initial exploratory procedure was high. Treatment consisted of formal muscle resection and combination therapy with albendazole and praziquantel. Clinical features of muscle hydatidosis and the role of adjunctive chemotherapy are reviewed.
