A patient of 54 years with a chronic history as smoking was hospitalized in urology department for care of a bladder tumor. As part of its staging, a thoraco- abdominopelvic CT was requested. He revealed the presence of a calcified hydatid cyst spleen, liver and lung were unharmed (Figures 1 and 2). The patient showed no hyper eosinophilia and hydatid serology was positive. The splenic hydatid cyst was asymptomatic and calcified that’s why the therapeutic decision was abstention and monitoring. To this day the patient had no complications.
