A case of echinococcosis in the retroperitoneal space, spine and bones, studied by computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is reported. The extramedullary spinal parasitosis was revealed and surgically removed by right D12 laminectomy. After three years the imaging follow-up showed the parasitic involvement of the same vertebral body, suggesting their iatrogenic origin.
