ABSTRACT


Hydatid cyst of the thigh is an extremely rare variant of the condition. The aim of this study is to systematically review the reported cases of hydatid cyst of the thigh. Science Direct, Web of Science, Medline on OVID, PubMed and Google scholar were scrutinized for articles which at least contain one new case of hydatid cyst of the thigh. Sixty-four patients were collected and discussed. In conclusion, hydatid cyst of the thigh is a very rare parasitic manifestation presenting as a painless swelling, diagnosed typically by magnetic resonance imaging and managed with en bloc resection.

Keywords: Hydatid cyst, Parasite, Thigh
