Primary pelvis hydatid cyst is a rare event. Pelvic hydatic cyst usually occurs after dissemination of cyst at other site, like rupture of hepatic hydatid cyst. The incidence of primary ovarian hydatic cyst is rare, it may not have typical imaging features of Hydatic cyst and becomes difficult to differentiate from cystic ovarian tumors. We report a middle-aged woman affected primary ovarian hydatic cyst with no cysts at other sites, the cyst was successfully surgically removed.
