Cardiac echinococcosis is a rare condition, and its manifestations are protean depending upon its site of infestation. We report a case of hydatid heart disease presenting like an acute cardiac ischemic episode associated with a rise in serum cardiac enzymes secondary to left ventricular free wall dissection caused by ruptured intramyocardial echinococcal cyst. The resultant complex cardiac anatomy was characterized fully by echocardiographic examination.
