Primary muscle localization of Echinococcus granulosus is unusual. The liver and the lung circulation have to be crossed by the embryo. The richness of proximal muscles vascular system of the lower limbs helps the echinococcus to implant. The authors report a case of hydatic cyst of the gluteus muscle presenting like a perianal abscess. The final diagnosis was intraoperative, after incision of a high pressure painful mass, filled with typical hydatic contents. The anatomo-pathological examination confirmed the clinical suspect. Postoperative studies didn't find other localizations of Echinococcus granulosus.
