Abstract Hydatid disease is endemic in Iraq, mainly in the north. At least 500 cases of infestation by Echinococcus granulosus are recognized each year. The first documented human case of E. multilocularis in the liver is reported from Iraq. The patient was a 40-year-old female farmer from the north who had never travelled outside her native town of Zakho.
