Abstract

A 13-y-old male patient presented with acute urinary retention and bilateral lumbar pain. The routine laboratory tests were normal. Casoni's skin test and indirect haemagglutination assay (1/160) were positive. Evidence of hydatid disease was found during surgery. Histopathological examination confirmed hydatid disease in the surgical specimens.
