We report a case of a 23-year-old man with a cardiac hydatid cyst involving the left ventricle wall. The diagnosis of the cyst was obtained by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. He was operated on for cardiac hydatid cyst using enucleation and capitonnage procedure under extracorporeal circulation. Histopathologic study confirmed hydatid cyst diagnosis.
