Abstract

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) may be encountered in almost every site of the body, but bone involvement is relatively rare. The vertebral column and pelvis are the most affected areas. The combined medical and surgical approach is the main treatment option in current literature. Although percutaneous treatment of CE cysts located in the liver, spleen, kidney, and soft tissues has become a serious alternative to surgery, there is no bone CE cyst treated percutaneously in the literature. This case report aims to point out that percutaneous treatment can be an effective treatment choice and alternative to surgery.
