|Background: Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) is an endemic disease in Iraq. Its classification is crucial for proper management.|
Objectives: To apply ultrasound study in classifying hepatic hydatid cyst disease in the Iraqi population, which is essential in treatment planning.
Materials and Methods: This prospective study conducted during a period from March 2017 to March 2018, in the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Teaching Hospital/ Medical City/ Baghdad. A total of 100 patients with a diagnosis of hydatid cyst by ultrasound were followed-up after surgery and histopathology were proved hydatid cyst. Their age range was 10-79 years (mean age 32 ± 12.5), female to male ratio 1.6:1. The standardized WHO classification of CE was used in this study.
Results: CE class I was noticing in (35%), class II (35%), class III (17%), class IV (7%), and class V (6%).
Conclusion: WHO ultrasound classification of hepatic hydatid cyst becomes more popular and preferable than other classifications. CE class I and II were the most common classes in the Iraqi population. We strongly advise to use this classification in clinical practice and scientific researches.
