Primary Hydatid Cyst of the Pancreas: A Rare Pathology

Hydatidosis remains endemic in many countries of the world and is caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus which produces cysts. The liver and the lungs are the most commonly involved organs although cysts can occur in other viscera. Primary Pancreatic location is uncommon with a frequency of less than 1% of the various locations. We hereby report one observation of isolated hydatid cyst of the caudal part of the pancreas in a patient suspected to have an Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Tumor.
