Hydatid disease, still frequent in endemic areas, is usually localized in the liver. Despite the benign nature of the disease it is one of the problematic fields of surgery due to the high complication rate and long hospital stay. Based on our experience we recommend evacuation of the cyst and omentoplasty as the surgical method of choice, as it is associated with a relatively low incidence of complications and can be performed easily.
