Cardiac echinococcosis has not been reported frequently. Because of the risk of potentially lethal complications, early diagnosis and definitive treatment are very important. We report a case of a cardiac echinococcal cyst in the interventricular septum. The cyst that caused angina and showed ischemic changes in electrocardiogram was diagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging and was treated surgically.
