Sir, An association of echinococcal pulmonary hydatid cyst with fungal infection is rarely seen in humans... We detected a cystic lesion located in the left lung with chest radiographic examination in a 24-year-old female patient that had been suffering from back pain and cough for a month... Cystic lesion was visualized with a size of 24 mm × 13 mm in the superior segment of inferior lobe of the left lung by computed tomography (CT)... Secondary infections, which develop due to ruptured hydatid cysts in the bronchial system, are usually bacterial; however, they are rarely caused by fungal infection... Radiological findings may lead to suspicion of the disease, it does not provide clear and specific data... SY contributed in the conception of the work, conducting the study, revising the draft, approval of the final version of the manuscript, and agreed for all aspects of the work... SG contributed in the conception of the work, drafting and revising the draft, approval of the final version of the manuscript, and agreed for all aspects of the work... OU contributed in the conception of the work, conducting the study, revising the draft, approval of the final version of the manuscript, and agreed for all aspects of the work... AU contributed in the conception of the work, revising the draft, approval of the final version of the manuscript, and agreed for all aspects of the work.

Figure 2: The left panel show computed tomography (CT) image of the patient before surgery and the right panel show CT image of the postoperative 6th month

Mentions: The patient did not have any postoperative complications and was not administered albendazole for hydatid cyst or itraconazole for aspergillosis. A CT examination that was taken at the postoperative 6th month was clear, suggesting full recovery of the disease [Figure 2].
