Abstract

Hydatid disease may develop in almost any part of the body. Approximately 70% of the hydatid cysts are located in the liver followed by the lung (25%). The kidneys, spleen, mesentery, peritoneum, soft tissues and brain are uncommon locations for hydatid cysts. Involvement of pelvis is very rare, with ovary the most frequently involved genital organ. We report a rare case of abdominal  hydatidosis with cysts in the liver, spleen, peritoneal cavity and ovary.
