UNUSUAL PRESENTATION OF HYDATID CYST; TWO CASES OF PRIMARY HYDATID SPLEEN

Berlot in 1790 is accredited with the first description of a splenic hydatid cyst as an autopsy finding. Echinococcus granulosus is the causative organism is classic hydatid cysts. Primary hydatid spleen is a rare entity. We present two cases of primary hydatid spleen picked up incidentally.
