During the last 10 years (1973-1982), we have surgically treated 9 children for large echinococcus cysts with intraventricular localization. In 7 cases the cysts were localized in lateral ventricles and in 2 cases in IVth ventricle and cerebellum. The children were from 3 to 11 years old. All cases were with signs of mental retardation and immediately before surgical treatment with signs of brain incarceration. In 7 children there was a disorder of consciousness, from drowsiness to deep sleep. The treatment was conducted with two surgical methods. All children survived the surgical treatment.
