Abstract

Hydatid disease is a condition most frequently affecting the liver and the lungs. Breast involvement is fairly rare. However, it should be considered in a potentially serious differential diagnosis of a breast lump especially in areas endemic for this disease. In this report, radiological findings of a case of primary breast hydatid disease is discussed.
