In this article, we report a patient with pulmonary hydatid cysts with coexisting tuberculosis and review the literature. A 21-year-old male was admitted to our department with a history of pulmonary hydatid cysts. In further investigation of the pulmonary lesions, computed tomography of the chest showed bilateral pulmonary multinodular lesions. Open lung biopsy was performed, and histopathological examination revealed pulmonary hydatid cysts and pulmonary tuberculosis. Postoperative course was uneventful and he was discharged with anti-tuberculosis treatment. This case emphasizes the importance of considering the coexistence of echinococcosis and tuberculosis in endemic areas.
