Rare Mediastinal Hydatid Cyst

Rare Mediastinal Hydatid Cyst

Indian Journal of Chest Diseases and Allied Sciences 57(3): 187-190

Hydatid disease is a parasitic disease caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus. Most common sites are liver, lungs, and brain. The disease is rarely present in the mediastinum. We report the rare instance of a 52-year-old female who presented with hydatid disease in the uncommon location of posterior mediastinum.
