The authors present the case of a secondary hydatid cyst of the spleen undiagnosed for a long time, causing a clinical picture of recurrent anaphylactic shock explainable by, in the presence of an intact cyst, the anatomic and physiologic characteristics of the host organ, that is the ability to cause widespread dissemination of the parasite by the contraction of the parenchyma.
