They have an inner germinal layer which allows further infective components of the worm, called scolices, to develop.
The histomorphological examination of liver sections obtained from the cystic area revealed findings consistent with a hydatid cyst invading the external wall, the cuticular layer, and the germinal layer (Figure 2).
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.10 Nevertheless, thoracoscopic surgery for bronchogenic cysts has some limitations.
Histologic examination revealed metacestodal tissue (protoscolices, inner germinal layer, intermediate thick laminated layer, and outer adventitial layer) compressing hepatic parenchyma.
The daughter cysts arise from the inner germinal layer; they eventually detach and float freely in the hydatid cyst fluid.
