Hydatid cyst of spleen with bull's-eye appearance on imaging

, : Hydatid cyst of spleen with bull's-eye appearance on imaging. Ajr. American Journal of Roentgenology 159(6): 1347-1347

The case is reported of a 32-year-old woman who had a painless and progressively enlarging mass in the left upper quadrant. Sonography showed the mass to be a will-defined cystic lesion difficult to distinguish from spleen. Closer scrutiny revealed multiple membranous laminations, giving a bull's-eye appearance. Surgery confirmed the presence of a giant, isolated splenic cyst.
