Echinococcal cyst is a parasitic disease characterized by endemic conditionality. Most often caused by larvae of Echinococcus granulosus. This parasitic tapeworm can produce cysts in almost every organ of the body, with the liver and lungs being the most frequently targeted organs. However, a cyst has a tendency to appear in different and sometimes unusual areas of the body in different geographical regions of the world. This article describes a rare case of a patient, a 29-year-old woman with complete occlusion of the infrarenal abdominal aorta by echinococcal cyst. The patient has been successfully operated and until today is observed in our center. The search for literature was conducted in the following scientific databases and search engines: PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, eLIBRARY.
