Abstract

Because of the rarity of hydatid cyst in the head and neck area, it may be overlooked by the clinicians. We report a case of primary hydatid cyst in the posterior cervical region without another organ involvement. A 54-year-old woman presented with a large, painless lump in the nape of the neck.
