Hydatid cyst is a parasitic disease that is commonly seen in certain areas. It may localize in many organs in the body. Pancreas is a rarely involved organ. A 48 years old patient who could not be diagnosed before surgery was then diagnosed with hydatid cyst localized in the uncinate process of the pancreas post-operatively. Albendazole treatment was begun after the operation. No problem was observed in the follow-up ultrasonography. This rare case may be mistaken for cystic malignancies and pseudocysts of pancreas.
