BURNEO ESTEVES, Mauricio; BERNARDOS GARCIA, Luis E  and  SANZ SANCHEZ, Mercedes. Uncommon location of the primary adrenal hydatid cyst. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2013, vol.52, n.3, pp.223-227. ISSN 0034-7493.

The primary adrenal hydatid cyst is a very rare disease for its location and it is found in less than 0.5% of the cases, even in countries with endemic presence of Echinococcus. Most adrenal hydatid cysts are asymptomatic, and the diagnosis is an incidental finding, the serological tests for the diagnosis are negative in many cases and the treatment is mostly surgical, with multiple surgical approaches. It is a rare pathology whose diagnosis, management, treatment and surgical approaches are not yet well established. This article was intended to address these aspects in a more accurate way.

Keywords : primary hydatid cyst; Echinococcus granuloso; adrenal gland.
