A 110 x 70 x 60-mm hydatid cyst in the right kidney of a 5-year-old boy was treated using a laparoscopic approach. The renal hydatid cyst was not identified before the operation. There were no complications related to surgery and therapy. The child was under follow-up for 12 months and there was no evidence of recurrence on ultrasonography and computed tomography during this period. To our knowledge, this is the first case of renal hydatid cyst treated by laparoscopic approach in a child.
