Abstract

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.
