Abstract

Abstract: Objective: A 30 years old male presented with swelling in right abdomen. Initially it was small but with the passage of time it gradually increased in size. The surgical exploration revealed mass present in anterior abdominal wall without involvement of intra-abdominal structure. CT scan of abdomen was suggestive of intra-abdominal, but surprisingly hydatid cyst was found in anterior abdominal wall without intra abdominal involvement.
