Abstract: Background: This is a case report of an infertile woman who presented to us with lower abdominal pain. In abdominal, bimanual pelvic and rectal examination confirmed a tender right adnexal mass with irregular bulging of posterior cul-du-sac. Sonography showed a large multi cystic ovarian mass without blood flow, in favor of adnexal torsion. Methodology: The patient underwent emergency laparotomy and there were 2 irregular masses that loosely attached to each other. The first one was twisted and the larger second one located deeply in poster cul-du-sac with adhesion to surrounding organs. Results: The pathologic report of both cysts showed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. There was not any other site involvement. Conclusion: Each gynecdogist should be consider the possibility of hydatid cyst in dealing with pelvic mass.
