Abstract

Renal hydatid cyst is a rare entity as compared to hepatic hydatid cyst. However, literature manifests case reports of renal hydatid cysts. The establishment of diagnosis becomes difficult in non-endemic areas. The tumour is well-considered on clinical examination and radiological investigations for this condition. We presented a case of renal hydatid cyst in a 45-yearsold male patient who presented with hematuria and was labelled as renal cell carcinoma clinically and radiologically. However, histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of renal hydatid cyst.
