Echinococcosis is a zoonotic parasitic disease caused by the larval stages of the Taeniid cestode species within the genus echinococcosis. The most commonly affected organ is the liver. Hepatic hydatid cysts have various complications, including superinfection and biliary, intrathoracic, and abdominal rupture. Intrabiliary rupture is the most common complication of hepatic hydatid cysts and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Urgent imaging diagnosis and surgical management are required in these cases.
