Hydatid illness in people is attributable to Echinococcus granulosus. It mostly entails the liver and, to a lesser extent, the lungs and spleen; nonetheless, it’s identified to contain different areas, too. Involvement of bone by hydatid cyst is uncommon. Right here, we describe the case of a 37-year-old girl who introduced with ache within the left groin and swelling within the left thigh. The radiological imaging confirmed a fracture of the femoral neck and cysts within the shaft of the femur. Analysis of hydatid cyst was confirmed on the idea of histopathology of biopsy specimens. The affected person recovered after surgical excision of the cyst. This case illustrates the assorted websites and displays of hydatid cyst illness, and the necessity to examine for it if cystic bony lesions are encountered particularly in endemic areas, as a delay in prognosis can result in long-term morbidity and even dying.
