Patient Data

Age: 20 years
Gender: Male

A large cystic structure is noted in the right upper lobe (on CT and on its scout image). It contains several internal membranes in its dependent portion, which is suggestive of ruptured daughter cysts. The findings are in keeping with hydatid cyst.

This case has been tagged as "legacy" as it no longer meets image preparation and/or other case publication guidelines.
