Abstract Our case concerns 66-year-old female with a multiple unusual locations of hydatid cysts including bladder, psoas muscle and liver. Coexistence of hydatid cysts in these localizations has not been previously reported. The diagnosis of vesical hydatid cyst was facilitated by the coexistence of other echinococcosis locations. Treatment consists of the excision of the cysts in the same session without any postoperative anthelmintic drugs. In a two-year follow-up no recurrence has occurred.
