The outcome of 5 children with visceral hydatid cysts treated with Albendazole and surgical therapy is reviewed. The diagnoses were confirmed by immunological tests, X-ray, ultrasound scanner (US) and computer tomography. The therapeutic approach was correlated to the type of infection pictures. Immunological tests, X-ray and US were performed with the aim to evaluate the response to the therapeutic protocol. Combination of pharmacological and surgical treatment resulted in a complete resolution for all patients without any recurrence and further dissemination of infection.
