Hydatid disease is world-wide in distribution but it is more common in sheep and cattle- raising countries. The disease is generally
acquired during childhood though it does not manifest before adult life. It may involve any organ of the body but majority of hydatid
cysts occur in the liver. However, primary involvement of the spermatic cord is exceptional. Implantation of the hydatid larva is
essentially haematogenous. The purpose of this study is to present a case of hydatid cyst in an uncommon location.
