Cystic hydatidosis is caused by Echinococcus granulosus and is endemic in the Mediterranean basin. We present a case of a 17 years old Moroccan woman presented with abdominal pain and fever. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography showed multiple liver masses and were consistent with cystic hydatidosis. The serology confirmed the diagnosis and a combined therapeutic strategy including oral albendazole and subsequent percutaneous drainage or traditional surgery.
