The larval stage is called hydatid or hydatid cyst and develops in almost all mammals, especially domestic and farm animals, and in man under certain epidemiological conditions. The liver, lungs, and kidney are particularly common sites of development and infestation. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed).
