Abstract: 

Background: Hydatid cyst disease should be considered in differential diagnosis in many doubtful clinical situations as can present with non-specific symptoms especially in the endemic areas. Cardiac involvement should be considered in patients with history of previous hydatid cyst disease. Cardiac hydatid cysts account for less than 2% of all hydatid diseases. In this report we aimed to present a case of 14-year-old boy with the diagnosis of occlusion of artery of the right lower extremity. Surgical exploration of the femoral artery revealed multiple hydatid cysts. Echocardiography showed a mobile mixed mass lesion. Complete resection of the mass was done from interventricular septum. Histopathological examination of the removed tissue revealed a complicated hydatid cyst and complete mass excision was confirmed. In this case a 7 year clinical and serological tests evaluation follow-up after surgical treatment showed no evidence of recurrence. The finding of this case emphasizes that in endemic countries, primary cardiovascular echinococcosis should be considered in differential diagnosis.
