Background and Aim
Hydatid cyst or echinococcosis is a disease that is found worldwide and in many Mediterranean regions. The most polluted areas of Iran include the Alborz and Zagros mountain ranges, where animal husbandry is common. Khuzestan province is one of the regions where hydatid cyst disease has the highest level. In this study, we study the epidemiology in hospitals of Khuzestan province.
Demographic characteristics, contact with dogs, raw medicinal plants, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment method, number and location of cysts were collected by examining the records of patients with hydatid cyst in the province hospitals during 1390 to 1400.
Of the 183 patients identified, 112 were female. Mean age (female 37.7 +_19, male 36.7 ± 17), housewives accounted for 49.2% of patients. 65% of the patients lived in urban areas and 42% had a history of contact with dogs. The liver was reported to be the most involved organ. The most common clinical signs were abdominal pain and hepatomegaly. 59% of victims had only one cyst.
Surgery was the most common treatment and radiology was the most common diagnostic method. The prevalence of human hydatidosis has been overlooked as the most important disease that should be considered by health policy makers. In addition, training programs are needed to better understand the symptoms of the disease and identify sources of infection in the high-risk group.
