A cystic lesion of the liver extending into the inferior vena cava was discovered in a 33-year old female patient suffering from dyspnea, pain and swelling in the legs. Plain chest X-ray was normal. CT and MRI of the thorax showed a cystic lesion within the right pulmonary artery. The liver lesion was treated by a partial cystectomy and omentoplasty, inferior vena cava and bile ducts repair. Through a right thoracotomy, a hydatid cyst was found in the pulmonary artery and enucleated. Although very rare, pulmonary artery hydatidosis may be the cause of an unexplained dyspnea in patients with hydatidosis of the liver.
