Introduction: Hydatid cyst disease is characterized by the occurrence of cysts as a result of the transmission of Tenia echinococcus larvae to humans. The most frequent location is the liver (60-70%). The larvae which fail to attach to the liver pass through the lungs (20-25%), and can be located in all organs and tissues connected to the systemic circulation (10%). They create hydatid cysts in the organs in which they are located. In our multi-center study, we aimed to present different types of surgical treatment, its results, and the associated complications on the basis of a wide series of cases.
