Abstract
Hydatidosis is a common zoonosis that affects a large number of humans and animals, especially in poorly developed countries. Mesenteric hydatid cysts are rare intra abdominal lesions with variable clinical symptoms and signs that make preoperative diagnosis difficult. The treatment is surgical excision followed by mebendazole for four months. We report this unusual case where preoperative diagnosis of right tubo-ovarian mass was made and the diagnosis of mesenteric hydatid cyst could be made only on laprotomy and microscopic examination after surgery.
Key Words: Hydatidosis, Laprotomy, Mesenteric Hydatid cyst, Tubo ovarian mass
