Multivisceral location of cardiac hydatid cyst is exceptional. A 37 year-old female, with past medical history of surgery of hydatid cyst of the right lung, underwent a systematic radiological follow-up.

CT scan defined a cystic mass of the heart, of the left lung, the liver, and cysts in the two breasts. So, the patient was operated under cardiopulmonary bypass via a sternotomy. Intra-operative examination revealed a cyst of the inferior wall of the left ventricle.

The cysts of the heart, the lung, and the breasts were excised in a single session, and the patient was discharged on the fourth postoperative day without symptoms. The cyst of the liver was operated one month later.
