Hydatid disease is a dynamic entity with varying imaging appearances.It can arise in any part of the body.
Familiarity with imaging findings,
especially in endemic countries,
provides important advantages in making the diagnosis.
Despite the characteristic imaging findings,
hydatid disease in unusual anatomic locations may make diagnosis difficult.
hydatid cyst should be kept in mind when a cystic lesion is encountered anywhere in the body.
Hydatid disease should be identified radiologically before its rupture to prevent complications.
