Acute respiratory distress syndrome after spontaneous rupture of a large
pulmonary hydatid cyst in a 17-year-old male: a case report
We described a 17-year-old male with a large pulmonary hydatid cyst with
a spontaneous rupture. He developed acute respiratory distress syndrome
(ARDS) requiring mechanical ventilation. He was treated with
albendazole, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and corticosteroids. He
underwent surgery after discharge. ARDS after rupture of hydatid cyst
was rarely reported.
