Figure

Abortive alveolar echinococcosis detected in a 44-year-old blood donor in Switzerland. A, ultrasonography of the liver demonstrates the presence of a small echodense lesion (arrow). B, a liver computed tomography scan shows a small, hypodense, apparently fully calcified lesion (arrow). C, after contrast enhancement, a very small hypodense area in the periphery of the calcified herd was detected (arrow).
