Özet

Hydatid cyst located in the pulmonary artery is rare. The cause is usually rupture of an intracardiac cyst or dissemination from a hepatic focus either spontaneously or secondary to surgery. In this article, we report a 32-year-old patient with a history of hepatic and pulmonary hydatid cyst resection, presenting with multiple hydatid cysts located in the right pulmonary artery, and complaints of dyspnea and hemoptysis.
