HYDATID CYST OF THE RIB: A CASE REPORT
Omar RH Al Dahhan
The hydatid cyst is endemic in our country, but bone lesions are less common. The disease often takes the appearance of abscess or malignant lesion. We report a case of a 31-year-old woman with a hydatid cyst of the rib complicated with cutaneous fistula. The surgery allowed both diagnosis and treatment.
