The authors present a patient with primary iliopsoas hydatid cyst treated percutaneously as an extremely rare case. A 67-year-old male patient applied due to tenderness and painless swelling in his left lower abdomen. His recurrent primary iliopsoas hydatid cyst after surgery was percutaneously treated with povidone iodine irrigations. He has had no symptom or sign for 102 months after the treatment. The authors believe that iliopsoas hydatid cyst could be treated by percutaneous method. More reports are needed for this rationale.
