  • 1Department of Cardiology, Cukurova University School of Medicine, Adana, Turkey.


A 25-year-old woman who had hydatid cysts in her lung was referred to our clinic for the hydatid cyst in her cardiac localization. Multiple hydatid cysts of different cardiac localizations were diagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiography, confirmed by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, supported by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for echinococcosis. Surgical resection was performed for the right atrial cyst and pathology confirmed the diagnosis. Oral albendazole treatment was given postoperatively. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 49:204-207, 2000.
