Abstract:   (540 Views)
Few data are available about hydatid cysts in patients with malignancy; however, these have rarely been described in association with leukemia. The purpose of this report was to present an unusual case of coexisting leukemia and pulmonary hydatid cysts.This study presented a 13-year-old boy with acute myeloid leukemia who was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary hydatid cysts after the completion of chemotherapy and successfully treated with surgery and albendazole. Managing hydatid cysts in patients with leukemia is difficult, and these individuals are also at risk of developing ruptured and infected cysts during chemotherapy. Based on our experience with this case, an oncologist could postpone surgery until the chemotherapy was completed and begin albendazole if hydatid cysts were detected.
