Hydatid disease, still endemic in developing countries, involves the liver and the lungs of the vast majority of cases. We report a very rare presentation of hydatid disease in a 35 year-old man with a cervicomediastinal mass and vocal cord paralysis, suspected of thyroid tumor. Surgery was curative and dysphonia disappeared completely. (Tanaffos 2010; 9(2): 61-63)
