Abstract

Bone infection with Echinococcus granulosus represents 1–2.5% of hydatid diseases. The vertebrae are a common site of musculoskeletal hydatidosis; other bony hydatid diseases are rare. The primary diagnosis of bone hydatidosis is complex and requires a high index of suspicion with clinical features and immunological and radiologic investigation. Bone F.N.A. is avoided as there is a risk of spreading and anaphylaxis. This paper discusses the bony hydatidosis of the scapula and proximal humerus, extending outside the bone and destroying it.
