Hydatid disease caused by the Echinococcus granulosus is a common health problem in Turkey, Middle East and Mediterranean Countries. The most affected organs are the liver and the lungs. The other organ involvements such as spleen, kidney, brain and muscle are rare. Here we present a case of hydatid cyst of the choledochus with an inactive group of liver hydatid cyst, producing obstructive jaundice.

Keywords: Echinococcosis, choledochus, obstructive jaundice
