Hydatid disease is a worldwide encountered zoonosis but at present very rare in Europe, liver and lungs being the most frequently involved sites. Bone involvement is very uncommon and the vertebral spine is the most common site of skeletal involvement (less than 1% overall). We report a case of vertebral hydatid disease with secondary pleuro-pulmonary involvement successfully treated by emergency spinal decompression followed by lung resection en bloc with chest wall and partial vertebrectomy.
