Case Report: We hereby present the case of a 26-year-old female who presented with an 8-year history of swelling in the left side of her neck. Imaging and histopathological studies confirmed the swelling to be a hydatid cyst secondary to Echinococcus granulosus infection. Conclusion: A high index of suspicion is required to diagnose hydatid cyst in differential diagnosis of benign swellings of head and neck region.
