Abstract

Hydatid disease is an endemic parasitic disease and can occur anywhere in the body and has a variable presentation. On imaging, the
lesions have varied appearance ranging from cystic to solid appearing lesions, solitary to multiples. We present a case of 35-year-old
female who underwent decompression craniectomy for right temporoparietal hemorrhagic venous infarct and now presented with
acute onset of right-sided weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging was suggestive of cerebral hydatid disease. The presented case
emphasizes that hydatid cyst should be considered as a possibility whenever a cystic lesion is encountered during imaging.
