Abstract

Hydatid cystic disease caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus is one of the major health problems in underdeveloped countries. Mediastinal localization is very rare. We report a rare case of hydatid disease in the posterior mediastinum with an enormous aorta defect. The patient underwent vascular graft placement without shunting or bypass.
