Abstracts
Echinococcosis is rarely encountered as a cystic brain dissease. In this article we are presenting a case of a young
woman repeatedly operated due to echinococcosis of lung, heart and brain. Recurrent brain ecchinococcosis developed despite
preoperative and postoperative albendazol therapy after first and combined therapy with albendazol and praziquantel
after the second brain surgery. The mechanism of recurrence remains unclear (primary infestation, dissemination
after spontaneous or intraoperative cyst rupture or new infestation).
