Abstract

Introduction: Hydatid cyst is a parasitic disease 99% of which is generated by echinococcus granulosus. The disease usually affects the liver and lungs. In rare cases, other organs are involved. However, hydatid cyst, may settle in more than one organ, in more than one focus in the same organ or even on both sides in the lung in patients. Therefore, surgical methods which will protect the organ it is settled and the parenchyma for the lung as much as possible should be used.
