Hydatid disease is not common in human populations of highly developed urban areas. However, increasing immigration, travel and international tourism have led to a recent increase in incidence. Surgery remains the method of choice in the management of hepatic hydatid cysts. Laparoscopic treatment of the disease has been questionable so far, though it is feasible and safe in use. We report a case of an 18-year-old woman, successfully treated with total cystectomy located in a favourable laparoscopic area – the border of the 3 rd and 4 th segment of the hepatic left lobe. The operation and hospitalization period were uncomplicated. Controlled follow-up laboratory and radiological tests showed no remaining pathology or recurrence in any form. In conclusion we state that the laparoscopic technique provides a feasible and efficacious option of treatment for some types of hydatid cysts located in the liver. It is a safe miniinvasive surgical approach which enables postoperative discomfort to be reduced and results in a quick recovery.
