Intraoperative Finding of Hepatic Hydatid Cyst with Fine Needle Aspiration: A Case Study with AFB and GMS Special Stains Highlighting the Echinococcal Hooklets

We report a case of an incidentally detected calcified liver lesion that was diagnosed as a hydatid cyst using fineneedle aspiration. The aspirated fluid from the thickened calcified cystic hepatic mass was clear. The cell block sections showed laminated membranes Echinococcus hooklets on the Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) stain as well as the AFB and GMS special stains. While needle aspiration may not indicated in cases of suspected hydatid disease, it may serve as a valuable diagnostic tool in cases of tumoral masses in which there is no clinical and radiological suspicion on this diagnosis....Read more
