Cystic echinococcosis of the liver is a form of parasitic disease that is endemic world-wide. Generally asymptomatic, on occasion, it can manifest with complications. Rupture and fistulization into the biliary tract, bronchi, or skin are the complications described most frequently. The development of a fistula arising from a liver abscess of hydatid origin communicating with the bronchi as well as the skin is a rare phenomenon, as only one previous case has been reported.

Abstract

Cystic echinococcosis of the liver is a form of parasitic disease that is endemic world-wide. Generally asymptomatic, on occasion, it can manifest with complications. Rupture and fistulization into the biliary tract, bronchi, or skin are the complications described most frequently. The development of a fistula arising from a liver abscess of hydatid origin communicating with the bronchi as well as the skin is a rare phenomenon, as only one previous case has been reported.
