Hydatid cyst disease is an endemic disease in our country and is generally located in the liver and the lungs. Soft tissue, intramuscular, and subcutaneous location is rare. In this article, we report a subcutaneous right thorax hydatid cyst case without any other primary disease. The cyst was extirpated. The cyst was opened outside the operation area and its germinal membrane was observed, and hydatid cyst disease was diagnosed with histopathological examination. As the hydatid cyst is endemic in our country, it should be considered, especially in the diagnosis of soft tissue masses.
