Abstract
Primary hydatid cyst of pancreas is rare. We reported a case of 49-year-old female who presented with abdominal pain. The diagnosis can be difficult, confusing with other cystic lesions of the pancreas. Imaging studies demonstrated a well-defined complex SOL of 55*52*64 mm of size with curvilinear calcification of wall in peripancreatic extent along the tail of pancreas. Diagnosis of hydatid cyst of the pancreas can be confirmed only by surgical exploration and histopathology. The aim of this study was to describe clinical, radiological and therapeutic aspects of hydatid cysts of the pancreas. Surgery remains the gold standard treatment. We performed an exploratory laparotomy and removed the mass from the tail of pancreas which is again rare and only accounts for(16%19%) of all the pancreatic cysts of Pancreas as distribution to head (50%58%) and body is (24%34%). Histopathological biopsy revealed Hydatid cyst. The postoperative period was uneventful. Additionally, a review of the literature regarding pancreatic hydatid cyst is presented. and the therapeutic modalities of this rare disease is discussed.

Key words: Hydatid, Pancreas, Echinococcus
