Özet

We report a case of an abdominal aortic embolism due to rupture of a cardiac hydatid cyst. This report emphasizes the diagnostic, preventative, and treatment options for hydatid cyst embolism of abdominal aorta. Echocardiography should be routinely performed in all patients with hydatid disease for possible involvement of the heart. This enables early diagnosis and treatment of cardiac echinococcus before life-threatening complications occur.
