AbstractThe hydatid cyst is unique and localized in the right lobe of the liver in 65%. The most frequent extrahepatic locations are the lungs, the spleen and the peritoneum. Liver (55-70%) is the obvious first site after entry through the gut and passage in the portal circulation. Most cysts tend to be located in the right lobe. Patients presenting with varying gastrointestinal symptoms and signs, and symptoms of space occupying lesions of liver like obstructive jaundice, mass per abdomen, patients with complications due to rupture of hydatid cyst were the study subjects. Tenderness was present in 83.3% of patients. Hepatomegaly was present in 33.3%.
