Echinococcus Disease of the Left Ventricle
A Clinical, Radiologic and Electrocardiographic Study
The subject of echinococcus disease of the left ventricle is discussed from the clinical, radiologic, and electrocardiographic point of view. Up to the present very few cases of this condition have been reported in the world literature. In most instances the diagnosis has been made by postmortem examination. The diagnostic criteria presented in this paper may be helpful in the recognition of this disease which, if treated by surgery, may be another form of "reversible" heart disease.
