Abstract

Hydatid disease of the muscle is very rare and represents approximately 3% of all patients with hydatidosis. Since the infection closely resembles a soft-tissue tumor on clinical examination, the preoperative radiologic diagnosis is very important to avoid biopsy. We report an unusual case of primary intramuscular hydatidosis with its magnetic resonance imaging appearance, clinical and pathological findings.
