Özet

Orbital hydatid cysts are a rare cause of proptosis and comprise only 1% of all hydatid cysts. We report a 13-year-old boy with orbital hydatid cyst and investigate radiologic, ultrasonographic and clinical aspects of the disease. The cyst was excised totally without rupture through a lateral orbitotomy approach. Hydatid cyst is endemic in some countries and sporadic cases are seen with increasing international travel.
