Hydatid disease echinococcosis is a potentially fatal parasitosis caused by tapeworm larvae of the genus Echinococcus which affects primarily the liver and the lungs. However, despite effective medical and surgical treatment, risk of recurrence remains the main problem in the treatment of the disease. We describe here a rare case of multiple recurrence of hydatid disease that lasted more than 19 years. The patient presented with multiple cysts of the liver and dissemination to the lung. The way of dissemination remained unclear and speculative. Despite surgical and intensive medical treatment the disease progressed and the patient died in septic shock.
