Alveolar hydatid disease is a serious and often fatal condition caused by infection with the metacestode form of echinococcus multilocularis. Liver involvement is seen in 90% of the cases. The parasite develops within the liver as a rapid invasive pseudomalignant growth and may make distant metastasis. We present the case ...

This is a case report of a so-called meniscal hematoma that mimicked a meniscal cyst. A literature search found no previous report of it before. Treatment with arthroscopic intra-articular decompression alone is enough. We discuss the possibility of its pathogenesis and treatment.
