Cytological smear prepared from the sediments (hydatid sands) of cystic fluid showed many scolices, brood capsules
and detached hooklets.
and protoscoleces bud from the germinal membrane.
Kamel carried out DNA analysis of brood capsules
to determine the eggs' parentage.
The primary cysts are fertile as they contain scolices and brood capsules
hence, rupture of primary cyst can result in recurrence.
MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION: Sections from the both cysts showed outer laminated hyaline membrane the ecto cyst and inner granular germinal layer the endocyst, focally attached to the endocyst are brood capsules
containing scolices within.
endocyst: inner germinal layer gives rise to brood capsules (daughter vesicles), scolices
The primary cysts are fertile as they contain scolices and brood capsules, hence rupture of primary cyst can result in recurrence.
