Dear Editor Echinococcus granulosus (Eg) is a parasite causing an incidental infection in humans. The disease can be observed as a hydatid cyst in the liver and lungs and is found in dogs and wolves as definitive hosts. It is considered a neglected infectious disease which has rarely been studied in Mexico1. In several studies worldwide, the genetic study of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing of cox1 and nad1 partial sequences is predominant.
