A 17-year-old girl presented in the surgical emergency department with clinical features of acute peritonitis. At operation, it was found that she had ruptured a multi-cystic mass arising from the anterior serosal surface of the uterus. The cyst contained multiple daughter cysts and laminated membrane. Hydatid cystic disease was confirmed on histological examination. Pelvic hydatid cystic disease should always be considered in differential diagnosis of pelvic cystic masses in endemic areas and ruled out by appropriate investigations in order to prevent morbidity from the disease, as recurrence is common if precautionary measures are not taken.
