Background and Aims: Hydatidosis is one of the most important zoonotic parasitic diseases. Hydatidosis is endemic in Iran and is the cause of hospitalization of almost 1% of patients in surgical wards. The purpose of this study is to examine the epidemiologic status of hydatid cyst in patients undergoing surgery in Golestan hospital of Ahvaz during 2002-2011 using archived files of the patients.
Materials and Methods: This research is a cross-sectional study. During the mentioned period, 2002 until 2011, 55 patients in Ahvaz Golestan hospital have undergone hydatid cyst surgery and the information in the patients' files were examined by referring to the relevant archives in the mentioned hospital.
Results & Conclusion: Among the 55 patients studied, 37 (67.3%) were female and 18 patients (32.7%) were male. The highest incidence rate was found in liver with 47 cases (85.5%), followed by lung with 5 cases (9%). Considering the results, the highest prevalence rate was found among urban residents (n=33 ,60%) whilst 22 cases(40%) belonged to the rural residents. The results of this study indicate that the occurrence of the disease was significant in Khuzestan province during the mentioned period which reflects the necessity of more comprehensive and updated studies.
