Abstract

The muscular localization of the hydatid cyst is uncommon (0.5 to 5.4%) and it is usually secondary to hepatic or pulmonary disease. A case of intramuscular hydatid cyst in adductor magnus is reported, calling attention to this atypical localization of the disease, which should be taken into account in the practice of surgery. The absence of residual cysts in the most common sites confers a higher interest to the case reported in this work. Though hydatid disease is endemic in India, we present this case due to the rarity of site and typical ultrasonography and computed tomography picture.
