Özet

We report a case of a single large echinococcal cyst that originated from the retroperitoneal space. Diagnosis was confirmed with serologic test and radiological examinations. Especially in the endemic areas hydatid cyst should be considered when evaluating cystic masses and it can be treated by extraperitoneal operation.
