Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The literature of human hydatid disease is briefly reviewed. Records from 1972 to 1979 in the Surgical Department of the Central Hospital, Tripoli, showed that 111 cases of hydatid disease were confirmed surgically out of 22,979 admissions, an incidence of 0.48%. Of the 111 cases, 73 (65.76%) were females and 38 (34.24%) were males. The highest incidence occurred in the 20-40 year age group, followed by 41-60 year age group. Recommendations are made concerning disease surveillance and documentation of epidemiological data.
