    <p>The patient experienced left lower back pain for three years and pain aggravation for two weeks with nausea. She had no history of exposure to sheep or dogs. Physical examination showed percussion tenderness over the left kidney region. A CT scan (A) showed connection of a CE cyst with the renal pelvis and an enhanced image indicated a thick-walled cystic lesion at the middle outer edge of the left kidney (6.7 cm×3.8 cm) (B). The boundary was clear, soft tissue septum, and multiple daughter vesicles and wall calcifications were also evident. The lesion communicated with the middle calyx and showed no enhancement. The left renal pelvis and calyx were dilated, and there was a patchy shadow of calcification.</p

    <p>The patient experienced intermittent fever, shortness of breath, chest tightness, cough, and expectoration of a white-capsule-like substance for one month and aggravation of symptoms for 3 days. He did not experience any itching or palpitation. Physical examination showed dullness on percussion in the right lung and decreased respiratory movement. He underwent two surgeries for hepatic hydatid disease in 1995 and 2003. A CT image showed multiple hydatid cysts in the right lung (A), chest cavity (B), and diaphragm apex. Compression atelectasis of the right lung and a large amount of pleural effusion on the right side was observed. Multiple hepatic hydatid cysts and a renal hydatid cyst with multiple daughter vesicles were also observed.</p
