About Pulmonary Hydatid Cyst or Chronic Lung Abscess (Symptoms: Chronic Wet Cough, Coughing Blood, Chest Pain)

In month of late August, 2013, A 15-year-old sick looking boy visited to my dispensary for acute respiratory distress. Upon examining I found him to have pneumonia like findings. He reported his main problems are chronic cough, which gets worse at times producing phlegm and at times blood too and with coughing and after coughing he feels moderate pain in chest. His other problems include fatigue, malaise, feverish feeling, breathlessness on exertion, sleeplessness at night, and night sweats. I asked for how he is having this kind of illness. He said he is having this persistently for last 10 months or so and taken treatment from various doctor and also was admitted in medical college where extensive workups were done and doctor said that he needs to have surgery, but his parents were not agree and take him back to home. I give him some medicines and advised him to come with parents and all medical papers available. Few days later, this boy came with his father with few medical papers of the boy, which were hematological as well biochemical investigations and they all were within normal limits. CECT Thorax (2 Feb, 2013) was also done, which showed large fluid density mass with thick walls in right upper and middle lobe, size 11X10 cm. Mild enhancement of walls is seen with no enhancement of central fluid density area suggestive of lung abscess?????. IgA antibody test for Echinococcus granulosa was performed on 22 Feb, 2013 and was negative. Ultrasound of whole abdomen (25 Feb, 2013)was also done, which was normal. Ultrasound of thorax (25 Feb, 2013) showed a thin walled cystic lesion in right anterior part of thorax measuring 11.8x9.9x11cm and volume 680cc suggestive of hydatid cyst. After examining all medical papers, I was very hesitant to treat this boy in light of seriousness of his condition, but his father as well as boy was very resistant to go anywhere else and wanted to be treated by me. I started treating him with homeopathic medicines and he responded well to this treatment. Now he does not have acute respiratory distress i.e. no pneumonia like illness so frequently, no breathlessness on exertion, good appetite, good stamina, but he still does have excerbation at times with worsening cough and hemoptysis at times.
Recently on 4 January, 2014, I advised him to get a digital chest x-ray of the boy, which revealed non-homogeneous cavity in the right lower zone mainly in para-cardiac region. Cavitation is noted within it. Approx size of opacity is 7.4 x 8.7 cm suggestive of Abscess and ?right hilar lymphadenopathy. Father is very happy as he was seeing definite remarkable improvement on x-ray appearance, but I am anxious for this boy and not satisfied yet.
