Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Hydatid disease of the primary type may involve CNS and bone. Compression of the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots, caused by hydatid material from an affected vertebra is a rare condition which makes surgical decompression mandatory. We report the neuroradiological findings in a case of vertebral hydatidosis, confirmed by surgical appearance and hystological examination.
