ABSTRACT
Hydatid cyst is an important endemic zoonosis in Iran. It may be seen in various organs of body. Musculoskeletal system is rarely involved by hydatid cyst, the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus. On clinical basis, it may resemble any soft tissue tumor. A 70-years old housewife living in Ardoghesh, a village in Neyshabur, northeast Iran, was admitted to general surgery clinic because of a painless mass in the back of her left thigh. This case emphasizes that hydatidosis should be included in differential diagnosis of any soft tissue mass especially in regions where hydatidosis is endemic.

Figure 3: Hydatid cyst in muscle showing germinal layer (Original)

Mentions: Gross pathology showed two soft cystic masses (13×4/5×4/5 cm and other 17×4×4 cm in diameter) that contained gelatinous material and multiple daughter cysts. In histopathologic examination cross section of a hydatid cyst with laminated layer and germinal layer, brood capsules containing multiple protoscolices, hooklets are considered as diagnostic keys (H&E). Pathological examination confirmed diagnosis as hydatid cyst of thigh (Fig. 2, 3).
