Objective: Pulmonary involvement of hydatid cyst disease(HCD) may cause ruptur, anaphylaxis, pneumothorax and pulmoner hypertension. Our aim is to analyze demographical and clinical characteristics of pulmonary HCD.
Methods: Demographical characteristics, laboratory parameters and clinical features of 171 children and adult patients with pulmonary HCD were enrolled. Age, gender, result of ELISA test, duration of hospitalization, surgical method of cyst excision and number, diameter, localization and perforation status of cysts were recorded. Physical examination, ultrasonography, computed tomography and serologic tests were used to confirm diagnosis of hydatid cysts.
Results: Perforated cysts were observed in 26 children and 22 adults. Twenty three children and 12 adults had giant cyst. Extrapulmonary hydatid cysts were observed in 10 children and 21 adults. Elisa IgG positivity was determined in 30 children and 34 adults. Twelve children experienced long-lasting air leakage that all responded to drainage. In adults group, 14 patients had long-lasting air leakage and 3 had empyema and expansion defect. The mean duration of hospitalization of children and adult were 8.9 and 10.45 days, respectively.
Conlusion: Better understanding of demographic features, clinical characteristics, complications of disease and surgical procedure help to determine optimal follow-up and therapeutic choice

Keywords: hydatid, cyst, demographic, pulmonary
