 Cystic echinococcosis (CE) caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus is a major public health problem especially in sheep-raising regions of the world. In the present study, CE cases detected during 1994-1998 by various hospitals and health directorships were investigated retrospectively. Our results show that there were a total of 699 cases of CE including 330 (47.2%) males and 369 (52.8%) females. Finally, it was found that the 699 patients had been hospitalized for a total of 9.246 days.
