Abstract

Acute pancreatitis is a rare complication of hydatidosis and the successful use of endoscopic sphincterotomy associated with extraction of hydatid membranes has been rarely reported. We describe a young man who developed acute pancreatitis after rupture of an echinococcus cyst, located at the left hepatic lobe, into the biliary tract. The cause of pancreatitis was confirmed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, which revealed the presence of a daughter cyst impacted in the major papilla. After sphincterotomy and removal of hydatid membranes from the biliary tract, the patient presented rapid resolution of pancreatitis and made an uneventful recovery.
