  • Figure 1
    Brain CT showing hydatid cyst

    Brain axial CT image shows a large, low attenuating fluid density thin walled mass lesion containing numerous daughter cysts with two adjacent cystic lesions in the left parietal lobe.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Brain hydatid cyst with rim enhancment

    This axial brain CT image demonstrates rim enhancement of a large cystic lesion after administration of IV contrast.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Brain hydatid cyst causing midline shift

    This coronal brain image shows displacement of midline structures to the right side by a large cystic lesion containing daughter cysts. Two cystic lesions appear at the periphery of this large cyst.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Pathology;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Multiple brain hydatid cysts

    This sagittal brain image demonstrates multiple cystic lesions adjacent to each other.
