A pelvic hydatid cyst is usually secondary to hydatid cyst involving other organs. Isolated primary pelvic hydatid cyst is a rare entity, occurring in 0.2-2% cases. The present case is a 46 years old male with primary pelvic hydatid cyst who was managed by surgical evacuation of cyst along with albendazole therapy.
