Recurrent hydatid disease during pregnancy.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  3056009     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A Syrian woman with pulmonary and hepatic Echinococcus granulosus had symptoms of hydatid disease during each of three consecutive pregnancies. We postulate that the decrease in cellular immunity that accompanies pregnancy might allow for increased parasite growth. Obstetricians should be aware of the potential during pregnancy for rapid progression and complications of hydatid disease.
