Multiple hydatid cysts of the brain are uncommon and map be either primary or secondary. We report a 12-year-old child with multiple hydatid cysts of the brain occuring 1 year after surgical rupture of a primary large and infected cerebral hydatid cyst. Surgical removal of hydatid cysts was successfully performed. Albendazole (10 mg/kg twice daily for 12 weeks) was administered to the patient in the postoperative stage.
