Hydatid disease is a parasitic disease which affects the liver and lungs mostly. Involvement of the pelvic organs is rare and presents with varying symptoms which often make it difficult to diagnose. In this report, we present a case of disseminated hydatid disease with cysts in the liver, spleen peritoneum as well as a paraovarian hydatid cyst concomitantly occurring with an ovarian endometriotic cyst on the same side.
