Özet

Hydatidosis in the lungs is unusual, and a cardiac localization occurs rarely. We report a child with cardiac hydatid cyst that developed during albendazole treatment for preceding multiple pulmonary hydatid lesions. The cardiac lesion was treated by surgical excision, and the pulmonary cysts improved with a combination of praziquantel and albendazole therapy.
