ABSTRACT:  Hydatid disease of gall bladder is a rarity. We report a case of 61 years old female presenting with right hypochondrial pain and hepatomegaly. The diagnosis of hydatid disease of gall bladder depends on high clinical suspicion combined with sonological and CT findings. Ultrasound revealed large exophytic lesion arising from gall bladder, CT showed heterogeneous lesion in gall bladder with CT density of 30 HU and a lesion in liver with split membrane. She underwent surgical treatment and histopathology turned out to be hydatid disease. In view of this case report, we present various imaging features of hydatid cyst of gall bladder.

KEY WORDS: Hydatid cyst, gall bladder, Echinococcus.
