echinococcus cysts (hydatids) have grown in the pelvic connective tissue and obstructed labour.
There exists a singular cestode which bears the name of echinococcus.
We give a figure of the echinococcus of the pig, slightly magnified, and an isolated scolex (Figs. 55 and 56).
In Fig. 57 is shown a tnia which proceeds from an echinococcus.
I need hardly say that the following bibliography by no means exhausts the records of echinococcus disease.
This form of the parasite is designated echinococcus multilocularis.
The usually placid course pursued by echinococcus of the liver may be much modified by inflammation and suppuration.
echinococcus granulosus is not uncommon in wolves (Mech 1970).
There are no corresponding changes of size in the echinococcus cyst.
In some cases the echinococcus cysts develop no scolices, in which condition they constitute acephalocysts.
