A case of primary hydatid cyst of the pancreas related to the main pancreatic duct is presented. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography revealed a cyst at the tail of the pancreas. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed dilatation of the distal part of the pancreatic duct related to the cystic cavity. While the diagnosis of the pancreatic pseudocyst was established preoperatively, the hydatid cyst was demonstrated at laparotomy and then the final decision of cystogastrostomy was employed. Following the uneventful postoperative period, the patient was discharged on the 8th postoperative day.
