Abstract

Nine cases of renal hydatid disease are reported. All diagnostic procedures are discussed and the important role of ultrasound renal scan and cyst puncture is emphasized. Although it is rare, renal secondary location has to be suspected in cases of hepatic echinococcosis and conservative surgical treatment is required to preserve renal function.
