Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Hydatid cyst remains a significant health problem in endemic regions such as Turkey. It can be observed at any age, but the diagnosis is usually made at adulthood. The aim of this study was to investigate the epidemiological findings of hydatid cyst cases in the pediatric age group in Turkey.
Material and Methods: The records of the patients who received the diagnosis of hydatid cyst in the pathology departments of Ataturk University Faculty of Medicine and Erzurum Regional Training and Research Hospital between 2009–2019 were analyzed retrospectively. Data such as age, sex, location, size and number of cysts of the cases diagnosed with hydatid cyst between 0–16 years of age were analyzed statisticall.
Results: Of the 1072 cases diagnosed with hydatid cyst, 32.7% (n=351) were within the age range of 0–16 years, 57.8% (n=203) were male and 42.2% (n=148) were female, with a mean age of 10.8 years (SD: ± 3.5; min: 1, max: 16). In 86.3% (n=303) of the cases, the cyst was found to be located in a single organ, whereas it was located in two different organs in 13.7% (n=48) of the cases. Involvement of the liver and lung was observed in 54.4% (n=191) and 50.4% (n=177) of the cases, respectively. Less involvement was observed in brain (n=10), kidney (n=9), spleen (n=5), retroperitoneal region (n=4), omentum (n=2), nasal cavity (n=1), thoracolumbar region (n=1), tail of the pancreas (n=1) and ulna diaphysis (n=1). In all cases, the mean cyst size was measured to be 7.4 cm (SD: ± 2.9; min: 1.5, max: 17) based on the largest cyst size.
Conclusion: Hydatid cyst is also common in the pediatric age group. Hydatid cyst has been found to be more common in males in the pediatric age group in Turkey, with its most common localization being in the liver and lung.
