Abstract

Echinococcosis, although relatively rare in North America, is becoming more prevalent. The rapid diagnosis of hydatid disease, using a noninvasive approach, is highly desirable. This paper describes a rare case of simultaneous pulmonary and renal echinococcosis, without demonstrable liver involvement, diagnosed by cytologic examination of a bronchial aspirate and sputum. This case emphasizes the importance of cytologic evaluation of a variety of body fluids to diagnose multiorgan infection by Echinococcus granulosus.
