Hydatid disease, most commonly caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, affects mainly human liver and lungs, and rarely other parts of the body. It is prevalent in most sheep-raising Mediterranean countries, Central Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Africa, and parts of South America. Peritoneal hydatid cyst, either primary or secondary, represents an uncommon but significant manifestation of the disease. The present case report describes a case of a giant secondary hydatid disease of the pelvic cavity with primary in the liver.
