Hydatid disease (HD) also known as cystic echinococcosis is a zoonotic infection caused by the cestode tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus and rarely by Echinococcus multilocularis. HD is endemic in the cattle grazing areas particularly Australia, New-Zealand, Middle East, India, Africa, South America and Turkey. In humans the HD commonly involves the liver (75%) and the lungs (15%). The remaining (10–15%) of the cases includes the other regions of the body.
