Hydatid disease can involve any viscera, but the lung and liver are the two most commonly involved organs. The primary localization of the hydatid cyst in the breast is extremely rare. Here, we are presenting a case of a breast lump, which after surgical excision, turned out to be a case of hydatid disease without the involvement of any other organ. So, the possibility of hydatid disease should always be considered in the case of cystic lesions of any organ, especially those in the endemic region. The best treatment modality is surgical excision without spillage.
