Abstract This report describes a case of hepatic alveolar echinococcosis. To our knowledge it is the first documented report of human alveolar echinococcosis in Morocco. Alveolar echinococcosis of the liver is a relatively rare, severe chronic parasitic disease. It is characterized by slow-growing cysts that progressively invade and destroy the liver parenchyma like liver cancer. The discussion presents an update of the clinical, histologic, and therapeutic features of alveolar echinococcosis based on the findings in this case report and a review of the literature.
