ABSTRACT:
Cardiac hydatid cyst is an uncommon disease, mostly involving the myocardium. Involvement of the pericardium or isolated pericardial hydatid cysts are extremely rare and therefore can mimic other pericardial cystic diseases. Herein we present the radiological and surgical findings of an asymptomatic isolated pericardial hydatid cyst.
