Hydatid Disease of the Breast: A Case Report
Hydatid disease of the breast is rare and may be confused with other cystic lesions. Radiological findings of hydatid disease of the breast are nonspecific. We report a case of a 30-year-old female with a palpable lump in her left breast. An ultrasound examination of the breast revealed a cystic lesion. Excisional biopsy was done, and histopathology confirmed it to be a hydatid cyst.
