Echinococcus Antibodies (Hydatid)

 

Echinococcosis is an infection by tapeworms in the Echinococcus genus and is a general term that covers three specific diseases: cystic echinococcosis, alveolar hydatid echinococcosis and polycystic echinococcosis.

Echinococcus Antibodies are antibodies produced by the body in response to an echinococcosis infection.

Echinococcus tapeworms have a more complex life cycle than other parasites that involves a definitive host and an intermediate host.

Humans are accidental hosts and do not typically play a part in the life cycle.

Echinococcosis to be asymptomatic for many years. Many cases are only discovered incidentally during imaging for an unrelated reason.
