Although hydatid disease has been reported in almost all human tissues, cardiac involvement is uncommon. The authors report a case of cardiac hydatid disease presenting with cardiac tamponade. The diagnostic value of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, computed tomography, and angiography in hydatid heart disease is also discussed.
