Abstract: 

Cardiac hydatid cyst is rare comprising 0.5–2% of all cases. A 20-year-old man was admitted for acute pulmonary embolism. Echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed hydatid cyst of pulmonary valve annulus. The cyst was drained surgically, and the patient was discharged with oral albendazole. For fatal complications of cardiac hydatid cyst, surgery is recommended in all patients.
