Cardiac hydatid cysts are very rare in hydatid cyst disease. We report herein a case of hydatid cyst mimicking left atrial myxoma. A 78-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with complaint of dyspnea and signs pulmonary edema and mitral stenosis. Echocardiography showed left atrial mobile, mostly solid mass with wall calcifications moving towards the orifice of the mitral valve. We also found loculated giant hepatic and right pulmonary cysts. We aimed to report this case because of mimicking mitral stenosis and left atrial myxoma and causing heart failure.
