Abstract


The present study involves a 47-year-old male patient from Jordan that presented with a history of progressive shortness of breath and chest tightness. Cardiac hydatidosis was diagnosed based on typical radiological findings and a positive serology test. Intra-operatively, there was a mass of a hydatid cyst located in the left ventricle and interventricular septum with no other organs involved. The patient was treated by a surgical excision and albendazole without any complications.
