Abstract

Hydatid disease is a widespread parasitic infection caused by tapeworm

Echinococcus and it affects mainly the liver, but other organs such as pelvic organs

could be involved very rare. Here we report a case of hydatid cyst with involvement

of oviduct in a woman with endometrial cancer. It was misdiagnosed as a multicystic

right ovarian mass before surgery and by microscopic study it was shown as a primary

degenerated hydatid cyst which was also unusual. Although pelvic echinococcal

cysts rarely occur, the gynecologists should be consider, and the possibility of a

hydatid cyst when they find a pelvic cystic mass, especially in areas where the disease

is endemic.
