DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS BETWEEN INFANT'S HYDATID DISEASE AND FESTERING CYST

The article analyzes difficulties in the differential diagnosis between festering congenital cyst and hydatid liver disease. Hectic fever for more than 18 days, inflammatory changes in the blood count with neutrophilia on the background of the ESR, CRP, values marked increase, the procalcitonin test and abdominal CT data as well as lack of epidemiological and laboratory data for hydatid cyst of the liver allowed suspect a festering cyst. The laparoscopic surgery accompanied by the cyst puncture and drainage (90 ml of the puruloid content removed) prevented the peritonitis development.
