MULTIPLE FOCAL LESIONS FOUND IN THE LIVER AND LUNGS OF PARASYTIC ETIOLOGY SIMULATING TUMOR METASTASES

Cover Page

Abstract


The articles states the results obtained during the clinical observation of a patient with multiple parasitic granulomas found in the liver and lungs that simulate metastases of a tumor of unknown primary location. The diagnosis was made with certain complications. The course of the disease with the lacking signs of tumor intoxication, no laboratory data without severe changes and histological conclusions could not relate to the clinic of a generalized malignant tumor. A parasitic disease was suspected. The ELISA test found IgG to toxocarosis (0.41). The antiparasitic therapy with albendazole gave a positive effect. Thus, the clinical case presented shows that unclear processes mistaken for a generalized tumor can be a parasitic granulomatous process.
