Mexican-native human echinococcosis: Case report of an underestimated disease

Juan Steta, Aldo Torre

Abstract

Mexico is considered a virtually free region of cystic echinococcosis. Almost all case reports within the country involve immigrants or traveling patients. This manuscript presents a Mexican-native human echinococcosis that developed in the setting described below. Review of current evidence suggests that this infection has been underestimated.

Key words. Echinococcus granulosus, E. granulosus, cystic echinococcosis, hepatic cyst, parasitic hepatic cyst, Mexican echinococcosis
