Hydatid disease is endemic in Middle Eastern countries. Liver is the most involved organ, followed by the lung. We review a case of abdominal wall hydatid cyst in a 75 years old lady that was presented with bulging and redness of umbilicus mimiking umbilical hernia. After opening the abdominal wall hydatid cyst was diagnosed and removed and after irrigation with silver nitrate the abdominal wall was closed . And in one year follow up no recurrence has been detected.
