A rare case of a she-camel heavily infected with Echinococcus granulosus cysts, is reported.
Fifty-one cysts were found to be distributed in four organs, 43 cysts in the lungs, 4 cysts in
the liver, 2 in the spleen and one cyst in each kidney. The animal showed no apparent
clinical signs prior to slaughter. This high number of cysts encountered supports the
previous reports that described camels as an important intermediate host for E. granulosus
compared to other animals in the Sudan.
