The aim of this study is to demonstrate the clinical manifestations and diagnostic approach to liver hydatid disease and suggest its treatment. The prospective study was carried out on 30 patients with liver hydatidosis. Hepatologic examinations were based on: medical history, physical examination, biochemical and serological tests, ultrasonography and computed tomography scanning. Twenty-five (83.3 %) patients underwent radical cyst resection, while in 5 (16.7 %) cases liver resection with left lobectomy was also performed. Hydatid cyst was histopathologically verified in all the patients. Our results showed that the patients with multiple cysts had impaired functional liver tests significantly more often than patients with unilocular cyst. In addition, ultrasonography and computed tomography scans are the valid imaging procedures in diagnosis. Radical, surgical resection of hepatic hydatid cysts is the goal of treatment.

-Guérin bacilllus vaccine at birth. Laboratory blood examination revealed elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) and an abdominal ultrasound (USG) showed the presence of numerous hypoechogenic lesions in the liver, hepatosplenomegaly and as-cites. The physical examination revealed abdominal distension, non-tender to palpation and hepatomegaly with a liver edge palpable in inguinal region. The results of some laboratory blood tests are shown in Table 1 . Bilirubin, electrolytes, blood urea, nitrogen and creatinine were within the physiological range. A computed tomography (CT) scan

-October, she was core vaccinated against canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza and leptospirosis and treated with a topical parasiticide containing 10 % imidacloprid + 2.5 % moxidectin. After a physical examination, blood was collected from the jugular vein for a complete blood count (CBC), serum chemistry profile and an antigen blood test specific for the detection of Angiostrongylus vasorum infection (IDEXX Angio Detect™ Test). In order to assess the lungs, heart and chest wall, the dog was premedicated with acepromazine and butorphanol, and general

, 1976 ). Briefly, mice were infected orally by 250 Trichinella L1 larvae. After 48 h the animals were killed, the small intestine removed, cut into pieces, and kept in phosphate-buffered saline for 4 h of incubation at 37 °C. The female adult worms were collected in test tubes. GA was then added and diluted in PBS to the appropriate concentration (0.5 μM or 1.0 μM). Controls included worms incubated with the appropriate volume of carrier DMSO or PBS. Worms were incubated at 37 °C in an atmosphere of 5 % CO 2 in air. Samples of worms were taken after 6 h and 24 h of

. Collection of anal swabs All samples were collected between 06:00 and 08:00, just after the children had woken up but before they had bathed. Each subject was sampled only once due to poor co-operation of the subject and/or their parents. Questionnaire survey A pre-tested self-administered questionnaire completed by the parents were used to evaluate the risk factors and clinical manifestations associated with enterobiasis. The information collected included finger sucking, nail biting, frequency of bathing, hand washing behavior, the number of household members

, bladder, skeletal muscle and skin. All fragments were fixed in 10 % neutral-buffered formalin, embedded in paraffin wax, sectioned (4 μm) and stained with haematoxylin and eosin (HE). After that the fragments were subjected to histopathological analysis with observation under a light microscope (model CX41RF, OLYMPUS OPTICAL CO.LTD., made in Philippines). For the evaluation of the results obtained, descriptive statistics was used to examine the association between parasitism and general health condition of the turtles.
