The authors report a case of hydatid cyst of the posterior fossa in a 22-year-old patient. He lived in a poorly sanitary environment and remains in close contact with the dogs. This young patient clinically presented with a raise intracranial pressure and cerebellar syndrome. The diagnosis of hydatid cyst was made on brain CT scan, which revealed a large, septated cystic lesion with parietal lamellar calcifications without contrast enhancement.
