They have an inner germinal layer which allows further infective components of the worm, called scolices, to develop.
The external germinal layer and transitional molecular layer.
Microscopic examination showed scolices of Echinococcusgranulosus with an outer laminated hyaline membrane and an inner granular germinal layer, which confirmed the diagnosis of a hydatid cyst (Figure 2).
The traditional operative approach is an open surgical one to drain the cysts and remove their germinal layer by either controlled evacuation of the cystic cavity or resectional surgery.
10) in type II hydatid cysts, a focal or diffuse detachment of the inner germinal layer results in a floating membrane inside the cyst.
Even if the cyst is ruptured and cannot be removed completely, the germinal layer should be scraped and treated with carbolic acid or electric cauterization.
Histologic examination revealed metacestodal tissue (protoscolices, inner germinal layer, intermediate thick laminated layer, and outer adventitial layer) compressing hepatic parenchyma.
Germinal layer, scolices and hooklets were variably present (Table 1) (Fig.
Abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed a large cystic lesion in the posterior segment of the right hepatic lobe, with a separated germinal layer and widespread ascites with dense internal echoes and septal appearance (Fig.
Even in the established cyst, because the laminated layer is permeable to host macromolecules (13), the outer syncitial tegument of the germinal layer is permanently exposed to complement levels.
Response to this therapy is apparently related to the thickness of the cyst wall, which the drug must penetrate to reach the germinal layer.
