Pulmonary Hypertension Secondary to Cardiac Hydatid Cyst Embolism

Hydatid pulmonary embolism is an uncommon condition. Pulmonary hypertension secondary to embolism is even rare. Cardiac hydatid cysts may stay asymptomatic for a long time until they reveal themselves with serious outcomes such as cerebral and pulmonary embolization, heart block and valvular obstruction. Pulmonary embolism is due to iatrogenic or spontaneous perforation of the cardiac hydatid cyst. Awareness of this condition and its radiological findings is important to prevent further potentially fatal complications. Herein, we report a case of cardiac hydatid cyst causing pulmonary hypertension secondary to pulmonary arterial embolism.
