Hydatid cyst is caused by the larval form of the parasite Echinococcus in humans. It is common in areas where dogs and cattle are kept. The larval form of Echinococcus infects mainly liver and lungs. Children are more susceptible irrespective of ages. Clinical presentations of hepatic hydatid cyst are varied from asymptomatic hepatomegaly to various gastrointestinal complaints. We are reporting a case of hepatic hydatid cyst in an 8-year old Bangladeshi boy who presented with abdominal pain, fever, vomiting and decreased appetite.
