A case of an isolated recurrent cardiac hydatidosis with multiple intrapericardial cysts is presented. The patient, who underwent 2 previous surgical resection of intramyocardial and pericardial hydatid cysts, presented with atypical chest pain. The ECG and the perfusion scintigraphy with 201-thallium showed a previous lateral myocardial infarction. The diagnosis of recurrent cardiac hydatidosis was made by two-dimensional echocardiography and computed tomography and was confirmed by clinical and biochemical findings.
