Abstract

Hydatid cysts of the head and neck are rare, even in countries where echinococcal infestation is endemic. This report presents two patients with hydatid cyst, diagnosed using ultrasonography and computed tomography, in whom the cysts were located between the right cervical paravertebral muscles and below the superficial muscles of the right temporal region.
