Introduction: Cardiac involvement is rare in hydatid cyst disease, which accounted for 0.5%-2% of all hydatidosis cases. Cardiac cysts usually occur as part of a wider infestation with extracardiac involvement. This study aimed to describe the general characteristics, imaging findings, and range of organ involvement in cases of cardiac hydatid disease.
