Abstract Lesions of the groin include hernia, hydrocele, spermatic cord cyst, undescended testes, lymphadenopathy, and abscess. Hydatid cysts are endemic in certain regions of the world. They are usually located in the liver, lung, spleen, brain, and kidney. Although many uncommon locations have been reported, hydatid disease has been reported 3 times in the spermatic cord. This is the first report of a child with hydatid disease in the spermatic cord. A 9-year-old boy with a spermatic cord cyst proven to be a hydatid cyst is reported.
