Abstract

Hydatid disease, a parasitic infection caused by the larval form of Echinococcus; is seen among sheep-raising communities in some endemic areas, and is typically found in the liver (1-8). Spontaneous intraperitoneal extrusion, which can be life threatening is a rare phenomenon (2).

A rare case of delivered liver Hydatid cyst into the peritoneal cavity in a 25 years old female and its successful operative management is described

Abdominal ultrasonography suggested a ruptured Hydatid cyst. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy; cyst removal, peritoneal saline wash and drainage. The patient had a smooth postoperative course and was kept on Albendazole
