The findings are presented of a macro and microscopic investigation of 89 hydatid hepatic cysts removed intact from 59 patients by total pericystectomy. Detailed analysis revealed significant morphostructural variability and cysts grouped into 10 types were characterized, providing useful clinical indications. Only 30 cysts resulted fertile (33.7%), probably due to mean age of sample; 7 of these were "classic" cysts, 1 "septated" and 22 "multivesicular" packed with daughter cysts (DC), of… CONTINUE READING
