Bottom Line: His postoperative course was uneventful.Post-operative albendazole for prophylaxis of procedures were recommended.The patient was scheduled for regular follow-up, to check for any recurrences or late complications.

ABSTRACT
A 47-year-old man presented as a dyspnea and fatigue. A transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) performed to assess valvar heart disease and left ventricular (LV) function showed a large hydatid cysts in the inter ventricular septum bulging to posterior of heart and compressing its overlying muscle as whitish round mass. The patient underwent elective surgery by evacuation of septal hydatid cysts from posterior inter ventricular aspect of septum and capitonnage of cavity. His postoperative course was uneventful. Post-operative albendazole for prophylaxis of procedures were recommended. The patient was scheduled for regular follow-up, to check for any recurrences or late complications.

Mentions: A 47-year-old man presented with dyspenea and palpitation of two months duration in Imam Ali Hospital, Kermanshah, Iran in June 2011. No other sign and symptom of cardiovascular disease were present. His pulse rate was 110 bpm, blood pressure was 130/89 mm Hg and oxygen saturation was 98% on ambient air. Heart sounds were normal, and chest auscultations of lungs were clear. ECG revealed normal sinus rhythm and no any type heart block was observed. A transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed well-defined, cystic lesions consistent with hydatid cysts seen as a mass in inter ventricular septum compressing overlying muscle posteriorly and bulging to pericardium (Fig. 1, 2). This cystic mass compromised LV and RV diastolic volume. However, LV function was normal without any regional wall-motion abnormality.
