To document the natural history of Echinococcus granulosus infection and response to treatment of human hydatidosis, we reexamined 28 of 37 subjects with E. granulosus infection diagnosed in an epidemiological study conducted in 1994. Twenty-six (70%) of those 37 subjects underwent abdominal ultrasonography, chest radiography, and enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assay in 1997.
This study was funded in part by the National Institutes of Health (grant no. U01-A135894, awarded to The Johns Hopkins University), the RG-ER Fund, and Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologı´a (CONCYTEC; Lima, Peru).
