Tuğra Gençpınar, Mehmet Güzeloğlu, Koray Aykut, Gökhan Albayrak, Eyüp Hazan.

Hydatid disease is the result of a parasitic infestation of the larva of ecchinocccus granulosus. Cardiac cyst is a rare complication of the infection. Most frequently, the cyst is localized within the free wall of the left ventricle and interventricular septum, where the blood supply is ample. Pericardium, right ventricle and interatrial septum are rarely affected. Symptoms depend on localization of the cyst. Here, we report a female patient with multiple cysts adherent to right ventricle wall were noted. The patient was successfully treated with surgical therapy.

Key words: Hydatid Cyst; heart ventricle, right; pulmonary embolism
