Title : Disseminated echinococcus infection with cardiopulmonary involvement


Our presentation is about a challenging case of a 28-year-old male, previously healthy and a nonsmoker, from India and working as a security guard. He was referred to our facility for evaluation of disseminated Echinococcus infection affecting the lung and heart, presenting with hemoptysis, melena, unintentional weight loss, and cardiopulmonary symptoms. Diagnostic findings included positive Echinococcus and Strongyloides antibodies, imaging revealing lung and cardiac masses, and pathology confirming Echinococcus infection. Treatment involved a combination of albendazole and praziquantel therapy, followed by successful surgical resection of cardiac and pulmonary lesions.
