Abstract

Hepatic hydatidosis is common in many parts of our country. Largest cyst reported measured 37 × 14.88 × 15.4 cm. We encountered a case of giant hepatic hydatid cyst arising from the left lobe of liver, measuring 45 × 35 × 25 cm. It was completely occupying the peritoneal cavity and had a narrow pedunculated attachment to the liver. This hydatid cyst is larger than the largest reported cyst. Also, a pedunculated hydatid cyst has never been reported. Hence, the report.
