  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

The cases of hydatid disease reported from Japan are about 60 cases by Echinococcus granulosus and 160 cases by Echinococcus multilocularis. The most favourite parasitic site of hydatid is the liver followed by lung, spleen and brain, and only few cases, of the kidney are reported from abroad. A case reported by Taniguchi (1895), in Japan, was a 54 year old male from Matsuyama City, who had Echinococcus granulosus in the kidney. The first case with Echinococcus multilocularis in the kidney was discovered from Miyagi Prefecture, Japan and reported in this paper.
