Abstract

Hhydatidosis is a zoonosis caused by the ingestion of Echinococcus granulosus eggs,released though the feces, from infected dogs to humans. Primary localization is mostly hepatic and/or pulmonary,whereas muscular involvement is very rare,even more so in muscular stiated tissue. this is the report of a case of a primery intramuscular hydatidcyst in a 79-year-old woman who presented with a 3-year history of a painful lump in her proximal medial left thigh. The authors document the exceptional giant dimensions of the cyst, which have not previously been reported in a case of striated muscular hydatid disease.
