Hydatid disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus, and the commonly affected organs are the liver and lung. The musculoskeletal or soft tissue involvement accounts for about 0.5–5% of all cases in endemic areas. This case report indicates that hydatid cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of benign cystic swelling in the head and neck region. We report this case of a 32-year-old female patient with an unusual presentation of a swelling in the deeper plane of the sternocleidomastoid muscle in the neck and diagnosed by means of fine needle aspiration cytology.
