Alveolar Echinococcosis, Hepatic

Liver Disease caused by Infections with parasitic Tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. Ingested Echinococcus ova burrow into the Intestinal Mucosa. The larval migration to the liver via the Portal Vein leads to watery vesicles (Hydatid Cyst).
